Photographer Terry Richardson alone during New York Fashion Week after sex assault claims

The disgraced photographer Terry Richardson has been spotted spending fashion week performing mundane tasks alone in upstate New York as the industry rallied for of one of the busiest and most anticipated events of the year.

The formerly in-demand celebrity snapper – who would have once had a packed schedule for New York Fashion Week before he was shunned by the industry after years of sexual harassment claims – was pictured solo on the nearly-deserted streets of Woodstock.

Richardson, 54, was seen visiting stores, picking up second-hand books and eating his lunch in a local bakery as A-Listers flocked to New York City to see fashion heavyweights showcase their designs.

A straight-faced Richardson was spotted earlier in the week carrying out a handful of everyday tasks – a far cry far cry from the hectic week of late nights he would likely have been having as a high-profile photographer.

He visited the general, art and grocery stores, headed to the post office and ate his lunch in a local bakery. Richardson lugged a box of books to a donation box for a free library before heading home.

In the evening she headed for dinner alone at a cafe, staying until after dark.

Richardson‘s career nosedived after faced years of sexual misconduct allegations by numerous models. He has denied any allegations of assault.

Though allegations against Richardson first began to surface in 2001, he was sidelined by the fashion industry since the beginning for the #MeToo movement after the claims came under fresh scrutiny in 2017.  

He was blacklisted that year by Condé Nast, the parent company of high-fashion magazines Vogue, GQ and Vanity Fair.

An email circulated among the media group was reported to have said said that work commissioned from him should be ‘killed or substituted with other material’.  

Richardson was known for his sexually-explicit photography style, including filming Miley Cyrus topless for a music video and inserting himself into his own X-rated shoots.

 

In an interview with the New York Times last year fashion designer Tom Ford defended Richardson.

Addressing accusations made against the photographer, who he had previously worked with, he said, ‘And I have to say that I never in my entire life saw any of that with Terry.

  

‘One of my assistants went out with Terry for two years and he was the kindest, gentlest person in the relationship,’ he said.

Richardson has shot major ads for Marc Jacobs, Aldo, Tom Ford, and Yves Saint Laurent, among others, as well as shoots for magazines such as Rolling Stone, GQ, Vanity Fair, Vogue and Vice, in his career spanning from 1992.

 n.  

Richardson‘s work has been characterized as hyper-sexual and is known for posing with his subjects.

In many of his shoots he puts high-profile celebrities or models in mundane situations, and photographs them using very basic methods.    

Richardson has been accused multiple times of using his influence as a photographer to sexually assault models during photo shoots.

On more than one occasion models, such as Rie Rasmussen, Jamie Peck and Charlotte Waters, accused him of inappropriate sexual behaviours and exploiting young female models. He has also been accused of using his position to engage in sexual acts with the models.

 

Richardson has insisted the allegations are false and said he was ‘considerate and respectful’ of his subjects.
