Terry Richardson is a photographer, born (in the mid 1960s) and based in New York. He grew up on both the east and west coasts of America and experienced Woodstock and the tail end of the LA punk scene. Richardson's early work was influenced by the lower east side of New York. He documented the underground scene in pictures that were raw and uncompromising, even brutal. These pictures attracted fashion designer Katherine Hamnett and resulted in a controversial campaign that ran throughout Europe and Asia. Richardson is unconventional at best - using basic equipment he creates an informal, verite style for his sexually provocative aesthetic has captured the attention of the fashion world and has made him one of the most in demand photographers today. He has worked for British, French and Japanese Vogue, W Magazine, Harpers Bazaar, Arena, Arena Homme Plus, Spin, The Face, Vogue Homme International, Dazed and Confused, i-D, Richardson and Index magazines. Advertising clients that have been attracted to Richardson's editorial style include Gucci for whom he photographed the main campaign, Paul and Joe, Hysteric Glamour, Sisley, Levis, Jigsaw and Hennes. Richardson has also moved into directing and has worked on a music video for the band 'Death in Vegas' and a short film for Uth. His personal work has been exhibited in Japan, New York and London.
