In 2015, New York art scene celebrated 20 years of provocative pictures signed by Terry Richardson. Working for magazines, fashion designers or covering the fashion news, Terry Richardson is considered as a trend maker and a very  sulfurous figure at the same time.

Etam, Juicy Couture, Mango or Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, President Obama and Beyonce, they all wanted to work under the eyes of such an artist. Since 1990, the beginning of his career, it is hard to tell how many VIP or people posed for him… On his official website,, the photographer carries on showing his covers and presents his past work, his videos and his diary.

Based in New York, Terry Richardson belongs to those rock n roll figures embodying provocation, glamour and sex appeal.

From glamorous covers to hilarious montages, the pictures taken by Terry Richardson are famous worldwide now and pay a certain tribute to Helmut Newton, such as the following:
