Terry Richardson and Miley Cyrus, at it Again (NSFW)

Terry Richardson and Miley Cyrus are completely, as you'd say in middle school terms, MFEO. Or made for each other if you can't remember that far back. They both have taken the spotlight and thrust it upon themselves by stepping out of the box and making people want to see whatever they're going to do next. Apparently in their world it just means a whole lot of nudity which may or may not entail Miley thrusting herself into an Arizona Grapeade.

If there is one thing you have to give credit to Terry for, it's the fact that he is consistent and can turn out a editorial like nobody's business. And since the photography community loves to talk about him and like it or not, everyone loves a good Miley Cyrus story, I figured I'd leave you with the gems that have come out of their most recent shoot.

Yet, he's far more successful than you...I bet if you only had that new lens, you could be as successful as him!

I have to take issue with your statement. Some people measure success in different ways. I do envy his business savvy, but I wouldn't be able to look at myself in the mirror if I had published these photos. To each his own, and this might very well show his success as a businessman, but I find his editorial and commercial work far more successful as photography.

He's doing what he loves, photographing who he wants and is able to support that, financially. That's success to me.

why does she always have her tongue sticking out. She is getting skankier and skankier. Mark my words, she will be the next high profile celebrity to have a very public breakdown. She is slowly ruining her career with her antics. Hope she is enjoying the peak of the publicity mountain because she's about to tumble hard down the other side of it

I'll mark your words. It's always easier to bet against, than for. Hell, even Rolling Stone bets against most pop-stars because it's the safe bet. They bet against Madonna, Cher, Britney, etc....all who turned out successful then they changed their tune. But, cool to bet against and say "i told you so".

Her tongue is sticking out because YOU don't like it. Don't you get it? Skanky? glad you know how many people she sleeps with....based on a photo.

skanky is a description look it up :dirty, foul-smelling or unattractive according to dictionary.com While I can't comment on how she smells it sound like you could vouch for her smell then. yet another definition includes sleazy or unpleasant person. Please know what you are talking about before you open your mouth. I have no idea how many people she sleeps with and I really don't care. I am personally choosing not to watch her videos or listen to her music. She is a terrible role model for young girls and women . There are others that have had breakdowns that were not so lucky. Brittany spears career has never been the same since. Besides a bet is a bet no one knows the outcome. I'm not entirely sure what you are so upset about other than the fact that you seem to have a short fuse and minimal knowledge of slang definitions

Skank.

Easy, there. Name calling is never a good idea.

Oh! I get it. because you know that she sleeps around and what not, from a photo/media. Gotcha.

Was hoping to see a side of MC that hadn't been exposed already, I was wrong. same old same (already) They seem to express a creepy element.
At least the tounges been cleaned. What a treat...

Reminds me of uncle roy and his polaroid (old SNL skit)

that man is a predator. these photos infuriate me. i have no doubt he laughs at all the women he gets to do this for him. i still like miley cyrus. i think she will have a long career. it's totally f-ed up that this man is helping her out by making her controversial for all the wrong reasons though.

I blame Obamacare!

and this person claims to be a professional photographer? this is the work of someone who has shot photos for one day and knows nothing about the proper way to use flash or anything else. there is not a single properly exposed, properly composed or shot image in this entire series. this is the person that gives photographers a bad name. I can not believe he even allowed to photograph famous people.

now on to miley. all i am going to say is wow. I have never lost my respect for someone as quickly as i have for her. I used to respect her when she was with disney. since she left, she has gone way off the deep end and continued to go further.

When your hot you can take a picture of a turd with a polaroid and its the best thing ever! And funny that his notoriety that he created himself made him an Icon. Just one of those things, if anyone else acted like him they would be called "creepy" and never work again but somehow he created a image that it worked and made him more in demand. Would be a great case study to see how this happened. He is good but we all know better photographers. Its his image that made him!

I really loathe Terry Richardson.

You should loathe the society that keeps him relevant.

terry = banksy = warhol = "anyone can do it" comments - the funny thing is, each of these extremely successful artists have defined their style to such a point that their works are instantly recognisable. Are yours?

Sorry but terry doesn't fall into the category of warhol or banksy. The only groundbreaking thing about terry's work is that it actually gets published in "established" public forums (i.e. well known magazines, etc.) and so it stands out as different from the professional work there. His fame perpetuates itself.
You could give any high school girl a P&S at a party with her friends and drop those pics in with terry's and you wouldn't see any difference except for the subject matter.

Funny thing is, that's exactly what I thought...

When I first ran into some of the pictures above randomly, I thought she was in a hotel room with her boyfriend or friends, and took some 'substance related' crazy shots there, and then ended up leaked to the internet. Then I ran into this article, and I was like, 'whoaaaa......'

Apparently good modeling = ;P

... 72 comments may explain his success ;-)

All people who are defending richardson say to the "anybody could take that shot" stuff is well richardson did and you didn't and so on.

Using the "he made x amount" as his measure of awesomeness is crap.

He is terrible, his "style" if you could call it that is terrible. The only thing that sets him and every terrible amateur apart is that 25 years ago he knew somebody that knew somebody that got him work then that was that.

Its not that he "invokes" or "captures" the true character of people, he is just pure shock value and most of it is terrible.

Its been proven many times that he's coerced young models in to having sex with him for jobs, masturbated in front of his assistants/ models and numerous other shocking things, just google it, loads of them have come forward.

What he does requires zero skill, if this one just a random girl, and nobody had heard of richardson nobody would care about these images other than their sexual content.

if you can replicate someones "style" instantly with zero effort (any camera with a bad flash) then surely it has zero value.

The only reason he is even talked about is because its celebrities, if it wasn't nobody would care.

These shots just caused some debate because it's a pro shooting a pop star, if both were nobody it would just thrown in the trash bin. Shame!

Which is why they're stars.

Chicken/egg. The stars make the trash, and the trash makes them stars.

People are so quick to judge Miley. You guys are saying you're perfect? Why should we look at someone in the lime light and expect them to be any different from us. I'm just as screwed up as she is, I just don't have the tabloids talking about it.

Now about the pictures; it's creepy, plain and simple. You look at the guys blog and its....just...creepy! Just my opinion mind you.

very disturbing

I can guarantee you Terry Richardson didn't wake up the morning of this shoot and say "what images can I make today that will please Fstoppers readers?" He doesn't give a F@#$ what we think as long as we're talking about him, which we are.

He has it figured out. Most of us don't yet.

This is literally the one thing every photographer (amateur or pro) tries to avoid being associated to when it comes to photography. The fact that a talent-less hack like Richardson (seriously, show me one fucking picture by the guy that has any artistic merit) and a music industry prostitute like Miley riding what she believes is the peak of fame create these types of pictures together is no surprise. I mean the guy didn't even bother to turn on red-eye-reduction for Christ's sake and she thinks that licking sledge-hammers is sexy.

I think the only way to deal with this kind of garbage is to simply stop paying attention to and giving any importance to it. Let's try that and see how quickly they fade from memory.

Miley is trying way too hard and the photographer is not trying hard enough.
