Sisley campaign

Maybe they think that campaigns which makes Terry lately as a photographer are better than those of the early years and I respect that. But their current campaigns they do not usually have the transgressive spirit of the first. They have also been the most controversial, but have a modern style, current, decadent and very homespun which makes them more special.

Their campaigns in Sisley they did running rivers of ink and emerged the first voices of protest against their photos with high erotic content and even “ junkie & #8221;.

When the photographer becomes famous

There is no doubt that Terry Richardson has managed very well monetize your image. His huge nerd style glasses, plaid shirts, their tattoos, their sideburns, his thumbs-up and its poses are unmistakable in the fashion world and the front-row celebrity. Any person who is photographed by just posing beside her or with their glasses, and always with the footnote “ this or that as someone I ”. It is the brand Richardson.

Breeding fame and lie down to sleep

You could say that Terry Richardson photography has undergone some evolution, in my opinion worse. Seated in a very privileged position It gives the feeling that costs you innovate and move forward. In his favor, it must be said that it has created a brand, a style and a cache around your figure.
