Terry Richardson Hits Back at Sex Abuse Allegations

One of the worlds most respected fashion photographers, Terry Richardson was recently accused by model  Rie Rasmussen of abusing his position and exploiting models.

 Fashion editor, Jenna Sauers said about Terry:

"I think for people in the fashion industry, the way Terry Richardson works has been an open secret for a long time, I think a lot of people tolerate it in public because of his extraordinary power within the industry. In private I think many are very disturbed by his history of behaviour with many of the models he works with."  

  Terry admitted to getting naked during interviews, in order to create a vibe/atmosphere:

"At first, I'd just want to do a few nude shots, so I'd take off my clothes, too … I'd even give the camera to the model and get her to shoot me for a while. It's about creating a vibe, getting people relaxed and excited. When that happens you can do anything. I don't think I'm a sex addict, but I do have issues. Maybe it's the psychological thing that I was a shy kid, and now I'm this powerful guy with his boner, dominating all these girls"

Now Terry is hitting back against the allegations made against him, stating on his blog the following:

"I just want to take a moment to say I’m really hurt by the recent and false allegations of insensitivity and misconduct. I feel fortunate to work with so many extraordinary people each and every day. I’ve always been considerate and respectful of the people I photograph and I view what I do as a real collaboration between myself and the people in front of the camera. To everyone who has embraced and supported me and my work, I am so grateful. Thank you, it means a lot.
