Is Terry Richardson an Artist or a Predator?

Terry Richardson Cover Story New York Magazine Is Terry Richardson an Artist or a Predator?

Lo conosciamo tutti Terry Richardson, guru della fotografia di moda, classe ’65, newyorkese e figlio d’arte. Già da tempo, girano voci su quel che Richardson imporrebbe alle modelle, raccapriccianti racconti che nessuno vorrebbe sentire, accusato per l’ennesima volta di molestie sessuali. La replica alle accuse, che ha portato diversi brand a prendere le distanze dal fotografo, la possiamo leggere sul New York Magazine dove Terry si racconta attraverso una lettera:  

"When people call me a pedophile and fucking bullshit, that’s a horrible thing to say about someone," Richardson says. In March, the photographer penned an open letter that similarly blamed the internet for a enabling a "cycle of Internet gossip and false accusations".

"It was never just me and a girl ever," he explains. "It was always assistants, or other people around, or girls brought friends over to hang out. It was very daytime, no drugs, no alcohol. It was a happening, there was energy, it was fun, it was exciting, making these strong images, and that’s what it was. People collaborating and exploring sexuality and taking pictures."

"I don't have any regrets about the work at all," he says, "but obviously I don’t ever want someone to feel like that. It was never my intention. But also, people do things, and then they have regrets, and that’s also nothing to do with me. Then don’t do pictures like that again... I’m okay with myself about everything, and that to me is the most important thing."
