Who took 1970’s porn esthetic and made it fashion
chic? Terry Richardson
. Who made the trailer park trendy and the tractor hat de rigueur
? Richardson again. Who’s equally at home in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Purple
? Our boy Terry. Who uses his fashion money to fund an X-rated website? Yes, Richardson. And who can’t resist getting his clothes off and jumping in front of his own lens? Well, that would be Terry Richardson as well.
Porn stars, supermodels, transsexuals, hillbillies, friends, pets, and celebrities all do for his lens what they’ll do for no other. And if anyone ever wonders why they did it, just blame it on Terryworld, where taboos are null and void, and fashion finds sex a perfect fit.Includes over 70 new photographs not featured in the original edition
