Great shot, Sart. I see this look all the time. The t-shirt, jeans, gold chain, tattoos–these are ubiquitous in Southern California. It’s good to see that skinny, nerdy, balding, bespectacled white guys can be cool, too. More power to him!
Well, I don’t know Terry Richardson, but from what I’ve read about the posts here, he seems infamous.. But I do like his classic white-shirt and blue jeans get up.. It’s actually very refreshing to see..
wow… I had no idea that everyone had such strong feelings about T.Richardson? Lots of negative posts, however I think it’s ironic that everyone who is rippin Terry sure seems to know his style and approach to photography. It seems as if his point is coming across clear…how he intends it to be. Love you Terry…
at least he doesn’t wear those hideous ripped side-less tank tops that people w/tattoo’s wear, you know, to show off more tattoos on their stomach/etc. As if it is something we all want to look at. That drummer from Blink 182 wears them all the time, they should be illegal. Terry’s look is classic white tshirt w/jeans, you can’t really go wrong. And it works for him.
mwade you assume that stating elements on his work is a negative judgment when is only stating the elements that contain the real value of his work. As you say “he has an approach” to photography, that is very clear and does not require lots of intellectual work to “understand” (I would rather say consume). Love or hate for Terry would be like people’s love or hate for porn.
Hahahaha, I love all of the snooty fashion snobs that are angered by this post. This guy looks FUCKING AWESOME. I don’t even know who he is, honestly. A porn star? Okay, cool. Just some random guy? Okay, cool. The personification of Los Angeles? Yes.
Now IÂ´m really lost.Read all the comments and I still donÂ´t have a clue to who this chap actually is.And secondly I donÂ´t even care cause I hate tattoos and since he has armfuls of them-well,I donÂ´t find this picture interesting at all.
Not sure who’ll still be reading this, so maybe I’m writing just to get it off my chest…
Not at all that unlikely I’d say. He looks like a very warm person and I could almost bet he gets this a lot. I was flipping through his photoshoot with Catherine McNeal in the October 2007 issue of British Vogue the other day, and thought how stunning his imagery was. Stunning in its honesty, clarity and humour. Though still possibly most memorable for its rawness and the erotic. Not to forget, this shot here is quite terrific, S.
Actually his drink looks like an Iced Venti Non-fat Latte that has been sitting too long and had all of it’s ice melt away and dilute the espresso shots into watery ickiness. ( I just knew that my 14 years at the ‘bucks would be good for something someday!)
