Oh yes I did. Did you really not expect me to abuse one of the most abused cliché in fashion and art and photography and just about everything that evolves photographs? Which is, you know, just about everything. Or just about everything that is visually appealing. I have been an avid follower of Terry Richardson ever seen I know what fashion is, but his recent editorial and campaign work leaves me in distaste. I don't hate it with a passion or anything — it's simply distasteful. I remember reading a quote from Terry about how your vision is already sacrificed when you agrees to work for someone, and the only way to stay true to your vision is to constantly break boundaries(Then again, that quote was from 2009 which is almost 3 years ago. Aren't you feeling old?). It seems like his quote does not apply to his professional work at all.
Ironically enough, Terry's candid work is anything but boring. You can really absorb the energy going on both in front and behind the lens. Take, for instant, this photograph of the model Tallulah Morton. For all you know, she could have been a member of a Riot Grrrl band in the 90s. Or maybe she's just a hipster bargoer from Seattle who really likes wearing her studded denim vest. You couldn't really have guess that she's a model, and that's the magic of photography. It creates a story, whether it is true or not, that draws you in without all these complicated similes and metaphors and onomatopoeia. And I'm sorry that I just wasted 6 minutes of your life that you're never going to get back.
