So he was not accused of anything. He's as innocent as any other photographer.

You're right that plenty of people have had consensual sex in the workplace, but to proposition someone in the workplace in a work situation is risky, especially if the proposition is for a hard core sex act. Some will comply, some won't comply and will keep it to themselves, but others will complain. Just because someone complied and others didn't comply and didn't complain does not mean that there is something wrong with those who do complain. In many of these articles it does sound like there have been complaints and dissent about Terry's behavior for quite some time. The fact that there was low level rumblings about him and this did not prompt him to curtail his activities and instead become more blatant about showing what a " playa playa" he was was foolish on his part, he has been playing Russian Roulette for years and eventually the spin was not in his favor.

I totally don't understand this, why is he allowed to go further than other bosses?

Has he put an advertisement on his website or elsewhere where he openly states that he is expecting the models he shoots to have sex with him or do porn? Does he or his assistants make it clear to the model when they are scheduling the appointment? As you said about Playboy, they go to a Playboy set to have their picture taken and not to do porn, why should it be any different on a Terry Richardson set? Most of the stories about his misconduct are dealing with fashion shoots or when he advertised for topless and nude models.

While Richardson has as of yet to speak out with regard to all of the allegations, they’re surfacing so fast there’s little chance he can deny each one. But, as Jezebel points out, given the fact that Richardson shoots for nearly every major fashion publication and slews of big name fashion brands, at a certain point one has to ask who else is to blame? Specifically, I’m speaking of modeling agencies, editors and those handpicking photographers for ad campaigns. Richardson is surely to blame and fully responsible for his actions, but so is every person who has continued to work with him after being well aware of his condemnable antics. What kind of backlash all of this bad press and uncovering of unflattering behavior will mean for Richardson remains to be seen. But I’d imagine it won’t be taken lightly.

This is going round and round in circles. Les Sucettes, you would not listen to a colleague or friend when they speak out about an issue like this to you? You don't listen just because the official police reports are not there? This is common sense...

Yea and you keep defending him saying he's a porn photographer so it's ok, but I really don't think he would consider himself one. He has said doesn't like porn and he has exhibits of his work in Art gallery's, he considers it art, do I don't see how you can defend him by saying its porn, so it's legal.

Ha! This is a pretty passive, not to mention arrogant, defense.
Caption reads "Me,Luchino Visconti,Helmut Newton and Bob Richardson."

Terry Richardson Update: Condé Nast CEO Responds

Thanks to our writing campaign protesting the unconscionable behavior of fashion/perv photographer Terry Richardson, Condé Nast’s CEO Charles Townsend has responded to our concerns. Note that Mr. Townsend is “appalled” by what he now knows about Richardson’s conduct. Yay Chuck! And yay Andrea!

Subject: RE: photographer Terry Richardson
Thank you, Andrea. I’ve received more email on the subject this morning than I can read, unfortunately. I have forwarded it to our fashion people here. They make the creative decisions. I’m appalled at what I have read. Respectfully, C. Townsend





So it's up to Anna now. If she has any common sense, she will stop publishing his work in her magazine. If not I have lost my hero.

I agree. Without the support of the top magazines and designers, his behaviour will not change.

I really hope that the fashion community will make a stand on this and not continue to let this person keep on doing what their doing...
