Marc Jacobs has revealed to the WSJ: “I’ve worked with Terry and Terry has asked me to do some crazy things. I know that those pictures will exist if I do them. But I’m a big boy and I can say no.” I see. That’s good for Marc, who added that Richardson is “not ill-spirited.” Somehow, I am not reassured.
Elsewhere, a bunch of photographers argue whether Terry Richardson’s conduct is business as usual in the fashion industry. Basically, everyone knows all about Richardson’s behavior, but they can’t agree on its significance. They can’t even agree on whether he’s a hack.
The Village Voice rightly wonders why Richardson has refused all requests for a comment on the story. No one is rushing to defend him, other than his buddy Tom Ford and one model.
You can tell H&M that you don’t feel good about them using Richardson to shoot their ad campaigns. Go here to send an email.
