About a week and a half ago, models began coming forward with stories about Terry Richardson's alleged sexual misconduct on shoots. Finally on Saturday morning, Richardson, who had not said anything on the matter, took to his blog to defend himself:
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.
Last week, industry sources told Fashionista that they did not expect these stories to affect Richardson's employment. “Aside from being a great photographer, Terry’s very popular. I think his friends in the business won’t throw him overboard because of some 'Page Six' scandal,” one said. Another recalled Kate Moss's 2005 drug scandal. Though she lost some contracts immediately after the story broke in the tabloids, she continued working for major fashion brands and appearing in major fashion magazines. And just look at how well she's doing today.
