Photos and photos of Terry Richardson’s photos by G.
Ever wondered what Terry Richardson’s family album might look like? Wonder no more. His exhibit “Mom and Dad” at Half Gallery in New York is here! The photos are taken from a 2-volume coffee table book that was published earlier this year. The photos could only be Terry Richardson’s parents as the artsy photos range from touching portraits to desperate times. Terry’s parents divorced when he was young and his father has since passed on so this was Terry’s way of bringing his folks back together – even if only for the duration of an exhibit.
The opening night reception (on 11/11/11) was quite a scene and I spotted former REM singer Michael Stipe in the crowd.
And of course, Terry Richardson was also in attendance. As always, he’s a really cool guy. In other Terry Richardson news, Terry and Lady Gaga are releasing a collaborative book and they are going to be signing copies at the New Museum in New York on November 22, 2011. You have to purchase the book in person on November 15, 2011 beginning at 10 am. That’s going to be quite a scene. Find out more details on the New Museum’s website.
Thanks Terry! Love you, man! “Mom and Dad” by Terry Richardson is showing at the Half Gallery (located at 208 Forsyth) in Manhattan until December 4, 2011.
