The man behind the curtain: Terry Richardson

Most of you will recognise Terry Richardson’s name from the closing credits of Miley Cyrus’s new soft porn music video ‘Wrecking Ball’ – but who is this mysterious man, and why is he shooting Miley in the buff? Mr Richardson is best known for his scandalous and erotic photography, as well as scandalous and erotic rumours surrounding him taking advantage of underage models… Whether you believe the rumours or not, there is no denying he does create some pretty rad images. 

You have most definitely seen his work before! His trademarks are a plain white backdrop, with celebrities wearing his famous black rimmed glasses doing a big thumbs up and/or taking their clothes off. He regularly shoots for GQ Magazine, and shot Tom Fords fantastically outrageously provocative  ad campaign in 2008. 

Recognise any of these?
