Terry Richardson opens his latest show at Paris's Galerie Perrotin under the appropriate title "The Sacred and The Profane." The exhibition comprises a series of new photographs taken in the western states of America over the past two years, many of which juxtapose, for lack of a better term, the sacred and the profane. The project began as a form of documentation of American summer rituals, such as fairs, festivals and parades. Over the course of his journey, however, Richardson realized there was a pervasive tension between a mystical and religious omnipresence, and the money-hungry sex industry, resulting in the photos we now see above.

Check out our recap and make sure to drop by if you're in the French capital. "The Sacred and The Profane" is open now and runs until April 11.

Galerie Perrotin 76 Rue de Turenne 75003 Paris, France
