Dust jacket back and front


This is Terry Richardson’s first book publication. A collection of his trademark snapshot-like photography with a strong erotic twist. This work made Terry Richardson one of the most controversial fashion, nude and portrait photographers of his generation. His carefree attitude encouraged his models to open up and present themselves without inhibitions. Richardson’s energetic images are provocative and take obvious relish in pushing the borders of accepted taste. A wild mixture of colour and black and white shots of teenagers partying, a clown, still lives, and male model Speedy are presented in full bleed. Owing to publishing restrictions in Japan, the genitals are covered with “funny” stickers or blackened out with marker pen. No text except title and credits.
