Looking at this makes one feel as if Terry Richardson has, in fact, splooged in your face (sperm being the bulk of his subject matter). However, the fact that these images are "controversial" is simply not a good enough reason to argue that the images themselves are "powerful" in anything but the most base, fart-joke sort of way. If you really want to look at something created solely for its shock value, knock yourself out with this wretched, pointless trash. Wipe your ass with it while you're a ...more

Say what you will about his photography skills or choice of subjects, he's obviously doing something right.

Some might argue that his photos are disgusting and obscene, and while I'm not necessary arguing against that viewpoint, I actually feel that many of his photos of women are empowering. The women are not victims, they are not forced into having their photo taken; it's almost as if Richardson gives them the freedom and confidence to let loose, to be imperfect and yet completely beautiful.

Terry Richardson captures sex in all its forms. From young to old, from male to female to transsexual, from hetero to homo, from black to white, from unknown to celebrity, from arousing to repulsive, from violent to humorous, from beautiful to ragged, from revved up to worn out, from objectifying to personalizing, from kissing to fucking, from nudist to crossdresser, from rib cage to fat rolls, from masturbation to gang bang, from man to beast; the lens of Terry Richardson do not discriminate.

Not sexy, and much of the humor in this collection of Terry Richardson's photos is adolescent.
This book is an excellent addition to the shelves of any lover of pop art and indie fashion. packed with cheeky and funny photos, it is always inspirational to flick through.
His nickname is T-Bone and he takes pictures. Nothing I say in this review can prepare you for what lies inside any better than that.
i don't really know what to make of him, but my gut tells me he's a hack who's been hit repeatedly with the lucky stick.
Terry Richardson is a great photographer, but man there are way too many pictures of his cock and balls.
sick book just like Terry! IN LOVE FOREVER with this man. if you don't like porn don't buy it.
too many cumshots, not enough pictures with Jesus-Vincent Gallo in them!

It's definitely not for everyone - but I find his work fascinating.
