Just another day at the office for Terry Richardson! This shot of Richardson with male models is from the Hong Kong Terry Richardson book, which was published by Diesel earlier this year. The book showcases a series of images taken by Richardson in Hong Kong in 2007.
The male models are all wearing Diesel underwear, while the controversial American photographer has dropped both his trousers and boxer shorts. Although his hand is covering his privates, Richardson’s pubic hair is clearly visible. Richardson and Diesel have a longstanding commercial relationship, which embraces several Diesel advertising campaigns.
But assuming that he knew this behind-the-scenes Diesel shot was due to be published, what exactly is the point Richardson is trying to make here? That, when it comes to the now fairly widespread claims of his inappropriate workplace behaviour with regard to women, which include numerous allegations that he has exposed himself on set and engaged in sexually predatory behaviour – with Rie Rasmussen and Jamie Peck going on the record last year – he’s an equal opportunity offender?
