He's not exactly receiving the best press nowadays, and I question whether it's finally starting to show in his work. Vogue Mexico enlisted controversial photographer Terry Richardson to shoot Isabeli Fontana for its June 2014 cover. Fontana strikes a pose with her arms slung up behind her head whilst wearing a dress by The Blonds. Our forum members are not letting this brash cover slide…
"It looks AWFUL! That dress is so bad it's not even funny and the photography by Terry R is, as always, cheap as usual," comments Bertrando3, clearly not very fond of the cover.
"Really?… Terry Richardson works for Vogue Mexico, well the cover is boring," agreed burbuja8910.
AL92 was in the same frame of mind: "I feel Isabeli, though beautiful, has the propensity to give 'crazy-dead eyes' in her print work and unfortunately this is the case here. That dress she is wearing on the cover is also very, very questionable."
"Terryble," wrote Nepenthes.
MoniqValentino made it clear from the start that she wasn't a fan either: "I'm sorry, but I just hate Terry's work. This cover is awful. Isabeli is so beautiful and on this cover she looks very bad!"
Fotoholic24, on the other hand, admired Mexican Vogue's latest installment: "I'm a HUGE Terry fan, unlike others here at the forum. This is very good news—to me!" I always like to read a difference in opinion, but unfortunately I just cannot agree. This is downright atrocious when you consider Vogue's rich history in fashion photography.
Are you a fan or think all of this is "Terryble" too? Join the discussion here.
