Profile: the very provocative Terry Richardson

Terry Richardson is one of the most prolific and compelling photographers of his generation. Known for his uncanny ability to cut to the raw essence of whomever appears before his lens, Mr. Richardson's vision is at once humorous, tragic, often beautiful, and always provocative.
Born in New York City and raised in Hollywood, Terry began photographing his environment while attending Hollywood High School and playing in a punk rock band. And he hasn't stopped shooting since.

Some of my favorite photographs of Terry Richardson come from his fashion portfolio. His editorial work has appeared in magazines such as French Vogue, British Vogue, i-D, GQ, Harper's Bazaar and Purple.
Here are some of the many many many fashion takes:

You may also know his work related to commercial fotography. Richardson has shot advertisements for fashion designers, including Gucci, Levi's, Miu Miu, Eres, Tommy Hilfiger, Club Monaco, Supreme, Hugo Boss, Anna Molinari, Stussy, Baby Phat, Jigsaw, Costume National, Hysteric Glamour, Matsuda, and Sisley.
Here are some examples:

Whatever the medium, Terry Richardson continues to prove that he is a true American Original.And a very provocative and controversial artist.
