Relevant Photographer TR

Terry Richardson

Terry Richardson is a well known famous American fashion and portrait designer. Richardson has many reacurring themes in his work, the main one of these being the use of A list celebrities in very plain boring and mundane situations. The reason why Terry differs from a lot of the other photographers is because he is known to use a variety of different cameras including the traditional instant camera. Richardson has had his work in many world famous magazines here are a few examples.... Rollings stone, GQ, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Harper's Bazaar, i-D, and Vice. Terry Richardson likes to stay traditional in his photography and often uses a main white background because by doing this the photos he takes will be solely based on the subject and nothing else. There has been much contraversy around Mr Richardson's work because of the sheer provocative and sexual nature that Richardson expresses in his shoots as he likes to create a Sexual atmosphere. Although there is a downside to this as Richardson has been accused multiple times of Sexual exploitation in young models. 

The reason why I like Terry Richardson's Work is purely because he uses plain simplistic backgrounds yet manages to make the subjects look so suggestive and appealing which really interests me, along with that fact that I will be using a similar background when taking my photographs . I am going to try and base my photography for my magazine in a similar image to Mr Richardson.
