The ongoing controversy surrounding Terry Richardson has now become a repetitive back and forth in which accusations of sexual assault are rebutted with persistent denials from Richardson. New York Magazine has decided to explore the issue further with an in-depth profile of the photographer in question, with the headline, “The Perverse Case of Terry Richardson.”
Terry Richardson, displaced from his old photography studio on the Bowery by a high-end fitness chain, was at his new space, an unadorned floor-through loft down the street. Wood floor, tin ceiling, brick walls interrupted by white swaths of Sheetrock. Four employees sat working quietly on Macs. Pandora was tuned to Elvis Presley Radio. “It’s insane, the internet,” Richardson was saying. “Totally craziness. Like a little cancer. People can just do whatever they want, say whatever they want, be totally anonymous. It’s totally out of control.”
