Terry Richardson Banned From Working With Vogue and Other Magazines

Leaked Condé Nast International emails decribe the ban on the controversial photographer.

Terry Richardson, the fashion photographer who has worked with some of the world’s best-selling magazines for years, has been barred from working with those same magazines, The Daily Telegraph reports.

An email circulated by the media group Condé Nast International announced the company would no longer work with the Richardson. Staff were told that any work already commissioned from him but not yet published should be “killed or substituted with other material,” reports The Daily Telegraph. The Condé Nast group publishes many high-fashion magazines, including Vanity Fair, Vogue, GQ, and Glamour. 

Richardson’s sexually explicit actions have been known in the industry for years, and his photographs have frequented the front pages of many magazines. According to The Daily Telegraph, he has denied all allegations of sexual exploitation of models.

Richardson’s contract arrangments had been in dispute with Condé Nast International for some time, The Daily Mail writes, but over the weekend, a UK newspaper asked why Richardson, now 52, was still allowed to work in the industry in the wake of Harvey Weinstein revelations. Twenty-four hours later, the email circulated telling staff not to work with him.

The email was sent by the company’s executive vice president and chief operating officer, James Woolhouse, according to The Daily Telegraph.
