“I don’t have any regrets about the work at all.” Terry Richardson Speaks Out in New York Magazine

VIA WWD

New York Magazine‘s much-anticipated Terry Richardson interview, which Jezebel touting as a “Terry-Richardson-is-innocent” cover story, was published. Best known for his fashion and celebrity work, much of it with an erotic bent, he regularly shoots covers for Harper’s Bazaar and GQ and has photographed virtually every major contemporary figure in film and music, not to mention Barack Obama. He excels at something increasingly rare in fashion photography: what the designer Tom Ford calls “capturing a very real moment.”

In the past nine months, criticism of Richardson has moved from the periphery to a more central and dividing place, where one is expected to take a stand for or against him.
