Okay, if I put aside the creepy feeling I get looking at Terry Richardson (don’t google his name + ‘sexual allegations’ if you want to view these lovely pictures with an unfettered mind), I can really enjoy his work. He recently spent some professional time (ahem) with Kate Upton for her GQ shoot and then he got hella lucky (ahem) when supermodel Gisele Bündchen casually strolled into his NYC studio. Check out pics from their impromptu photo shoot inside. And no more jokes about sexual allegations. Promise.
Believe it or not, this is exactly what I look like when I get out of bed:
And this is pretty much how I look when I go to Target. You know, casual but chic. LOL.
A few months back, Trent posted pics from Dave Franco’s photo shoot with Richardson. Those were also pretty sweet. In fact, I’m having trouble completing this post in a timely fashion as a result. But when I look at Terry Richardson’s stuff, I can’t help but feel awk. Try as I might, I just can’t ignore the creep factor entirely.
It’s like when I saw Roman Polanski’s Carnage (easily one of my top 5 favorite films of all time) and I kept thinking about how and why he got banned from the United States of America. Which is why the movie (set in Brooklyn) had to be shot in Paris.
Important questions I need help working through: 1.) Is there any real way to separate an artist’s work from his personal life– and disturbing sexual history??? 2.) Why does Gisele looks so friggen AMAZING???
