  1. 1. What's the deal with Terry?

    • He's a misunderstood victim of circumstances and his quirky imagination
      7
    • He's a pervert who uses his status as a high-profile photographer to take advantage of (young) models
      23
    • He's a bit of both of the above
      27

Well yes but I have suspected as much about Marloes for a long time. She even looks naughty!

Petition calls for brands to end work with 'pornographic' Terry Richardson

Photographer has shot Miley, Gaga and more

An online petition is urging big name brands to end their their use Miley Cyrus' photographer Terry Richardson from future campaigns due to claims of innapropriate behaviour towards his female subjects. Richardson who directed Miley Cyrus' 'Wrecking ball' video and the overtly-raunchy photo shoot afterwards is the subject of a petition that highlights the negative impact he is having on society. Richardson is no stranger to controversy following a history of drug abuse, schizophrenia and multiple allegations regarding sexual misconduct on fashion sets. You can view the petition here. Richardson has also worked with Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Sky Ferreira and appears in the 30 Seconds To Mars video 'Hurricane'.

The petition reads: 'More awareness needs to be brought to light that Terry Richardson is negatively influencing media with his supposed exploit & abuse of certain models, mainstream degrading pornographic imagery, and inappropriate and unproffessional behavior.' Going on to state: 'His contribution to society has a bad impact as he is being exposed to the masses with the impression of being well received while there are potentially unethical practices not being shown. Allegations and complaints have been publicised from the likes of Coco Rocha, Jamie Peck and Danish Supermodel Rie Rasmussen'.

The page also contains quotes from Jamie Peck and a fashion insider who says agencies 'know full well Richardson's predatory behavior,' but that he 'is tolerated because the industry folk are just sheep. There are only a handful of photographers who have the power, a handful of editors who have the power, and a handful of clients who have the power. Everyone else just follows this small group of people'.

My opinion is really divided on this photographer, for me his work is respectable ... when it is not pornographic ...

 

I must say that his attitude with models is a bit troublesome for me, i don't like a lot the personage.

But we must say also that her work seems pretty appreciate in the fashion world and industry, so...

 

He's not the first artist used provocation to promote himself after all, but what is particular with him that's he use models to be provocative with they, this is for me the probleme (even if sometimes i must say i like that also  :D ...) Personally, i hope Genevieve will never work with him (i think ...?  :huh:  :laugh: ), even if i must admit that it would be very good for her career if you see what i mean ...

Most of the models attacking Terry are very religious ones. Believing in God and talking about it as much as they can in interview. Very religious girls are offended easily. And Terry is one big persistent offender! Am I shocked by his attitude with models? NO.

Will I let him alone with my 16 years old niece for a photoshoot? NO... If my niece is 25? Go for it girl and don't do thing... I will do! :rofl:

Miss Kiki,

 

To me, the complaints are just a publicity stunt by the models themselves.  Working for Terry once appears to be a rite of passage for top model-hood.   His portfolio is softcore and there should have been no other expectations once they got hired.  If he is indeed a gatekeeper of sorts, then what is the nature and means of his gate-keeping?  That's the more interesting question.

How many models will speak out against Terry Richardson before the fashion industry cares?

This is Amy Hixson's comment regarding the article above: Sober or not he still did it. I have personal history as well as can attest to these allegations. True he is professional on set at times, remembers everyone's name, soft spoken at first, brings his dog. regardless, He is a very public creep.
