About Terry Richardson
Terry Richardson is a commercial photographer who takes playful and sexual images of celebrities in a style the New York Times has described as “glossed-up 1970s porn chic”. With his signature thick glasses, Richardson often poses with the models that he shoots, never shying away from offense, whether through his sexually graphic books, controversial public statements, or provocative celebrity portraits. For a 2011 photo book, he followed Lady Gaga for a year, documenting her life and performances in raw, behind-the-scenes photos.
American, b. 1965, New York, New York, based in Los Angeles, California
