Contact High is a new collection of works by photographer Richard Kern. Inspired by a chance encounter with a young model who reminded him of the girls of his pot-smoking days, the collection is imbibed with youthful hedonism, nostalgia and innocence. Kern says of the premise for the photographs, "I spent a lot of time with my friends smoking pot, listening to music, running around in the woods and sometimes swimming naked. Back then, when I was around a naked girl, weed was either about to be smoked or had been smoked."
