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, his vision is at once humorous, tragic, often beautiful, and always provocative. Born in New York City and raised in Hollywood, Richardson began photographing his environment while attending Hollywood High School and playing in a punk rock band, and he hasn’t stopped shooting since. Whatever the medium, Terry Richardson continues to prove that he is a true American Original.
