I’m not sure if this has been clear in my previous posts about Terry Richardson and his work, but I absolutely despise the guy. And I don’t despise him simply because he’s an aging hipster and that’s the single most pathetic thing anyone could be. No, I despise Terry Richardson for the simple fact that he includes a photo of himself posing with his subject in every damn photo set he creates.
And then there are all the stories of Terry Richardson sexually harassing the models he works with, which just isn’t cool. Leveraging your reputation to receive sexual favors from up-and-coming models probably happens all the time in the fashion industry, but like c’mon. It’s not cool.
