"Sex? What else? Why have my pants got a hole in the front?"
Welcome to Terryworld, the land restraint forgot
Who took 1970s porn esthetic and made it fashion chic? Terry
Richardson. Who made the trailer park trendy and the tractor hat de
rigueur? Richardson again. Who’s equally at home in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Purple and Vice?
Our boy Terry. Who uses his fashion money to fund an X-rated website?
Yes, Richardson. And who can’t resist getting his clothes off and
jumping in front of his own lens? Well, that would be Terry Richardson
Porn stars, supermodels, transsexuals, hillbillies, friends, pets, and
celebrities all do for his lens what they’ll do for no other. And if
anyone ever wonders why they did it, just blame it on Terryworld, where
taboos are null and void, and fashion finds sex a perfect fit.
