Terry Richardson has responded to reports he has been banned from Condé Nast publications including Vogue and GQ.
A representative of the photographer sent HuffPost UK the following statement:
“Terry is disappointed to hear about this email especially because he has previously addressed these old stories.
“He is an artist who has been known for his sexually explicit work so many of his professional interactions with subjects were sexual and explicit in nature but all of the subjects of his work participated consensually.”
An email circulated at Condé Nast, stated the dismissal of any projects with Richardson, effective immediately, according to a report by The Telegraph.
The email did not state the reason for this severance of ties.
The report of Richardson being shunned by top fashion titles came after a wave of models spoke out about sexual harassment in the industry.
Women who have posed for Richardson have previously claimed his treatment of them was unacceptable and branded him “a creep” and a “predator with a camera”.
In 2014 Richardson denied accusations of sexual harassment made against him.
