"Sex? What else? Why have my pants got a hole in the front?" Who took 1970's porn aesthetic and made it fashion chic, Terry Richardson. Who made the trailer park trendy and the tractor hat de rigueur?, Richardson again. Who's equally at home in "Vogue", "Harper's Bazaar", "Purple" and "Vice", Our boy Terry. Who uses his fashion money to fund an X-rated website? Yes, Richardson. And who can't resist getting his clothes off and jumping in front of his own lens? Well, that would be Terry Richardson as well .Porn stars, supermodels, transsexuals, hillbillies, friends, pets, and celebrities all do for his lens what they'll do for no other. And if anyone ever wonders why they did it, just blame it on Terryworld, where taboos are null and void, and fashion finds sex a perfect fit.
