>>2750338 He's done a lot of shit for fashion companies in the past years. You're probably not looking in the right places, and it probably helps that there are a lot of people doing the same shit that he is which kinda blends together with his work.
>>2751157 That's about right. I don't look in the kinds of places I might find his work. None of my friends or family know who he is. If it wasn't for /b/ and /p/ I could have walked past him on the street without noticing.
>>2750333 I think the reason he's famous is mostly due to the way he directs his subjects, especially the celebrities. Makes them seems like humans, which I would partly attribute to the 'amateurish' effect of straight on flash, something that's most commonly used by laypeople.
I like his photos, they're not particularly impressive by any stretch of the imagination but they're fun to look at. Anyone can get his effect but no one does it like he does it.
>>2755047 on top of all that, there are many famous humans with family members that try very hard to become famous but still do not even receive 2 seconds of fame, to be on Terry's level of fame you must have some unique talent, Bob wasn't even 5% as known as Terry is today. a model holding Bobby:
i enjoy Larry but love Terry more and yet i still get a kick out of artists or talented dudes, talking shit about each other,like Vincent Gallo on Korine and everyone:
>Do you think photography has changed?
>Larry Clark: Photography for me has changed now. You know, now everybody is a photographer, but nobody thinks about light, they use fucking flash on a camera. Do you know the worst photographer in the world? We actually are quite friendly, Terry Richardson. Terrible! Horrible! He could not take a picture that depended on lighting. Sucks! His father, Bob Richardson was a fashion photographer, there is a really good picture that Bob took of me on my website, and I knew Bob a bit before he passed away. But he used to tell Terry he was a bad photographer. So now I do it, taking on Bob’s role. So Terry thought when his father passed away, maybe it was over but it’s not over, because every time I see Terry I say, “You are bad, you suck” Because he takes pictures with flash on his camera, and against your face and click, and click and click, and says “Wonderful, wonderful” “that’s great! That’s great!” but I never moved an inch. He photographed me for INTERVIEW, and I really did not want this guy to photograph me, but I agreed to do it. I went and they had racks of clothes, but I wore a black suit and tie, and I never changed my expression, yet he took a million pictures of me. I was determined to control the picture. So I looked at him, and he tried everything he could to get me laughing but I would do nothing. He stood in front of me, and he’s even got his assistant changing cards for him, but I never moved, I never changed expression. I gave him a good picture, but he still is the worst. Because photography to me, is about light and feeling, and you can do so much with that. With the flash on, the camera straight in your face, it does nothing. It wipes out everything. It is good sometimes, you know, paparazzi kind of pictures of the moment.
Larry Clark - Yes. Speaking of fashion, though, Terry Richardson’s father Bob Richardson was a famous fashion photographer in the ’60s and there’s a picture that he took of me on my website. I just posted that. Someone just gave it to me, I’d never seen it before.
Olivier Zahm - Terry gave it to you?
Larry Clark - No, it wasn’t Terry. It was someone else who gave it to me. A magazine called me and said that Bob Richardson wanted to photograph me. I thought it was Terry and I didn’t want to do it. I said, “No, no, no.” I didn’t want to be photographed by Terry Richardson, but finally I said, “Oh, OK,” so they came and it wasn’t Terry, it was his father Bob. And so I’m talking to Bob and he said, “Do you know why you’re able to make your movies about kids and do all this work you do? Because you’re cool. If you weren’t cool, you couldn’t get within a mile of these kids.” And I said, “Oh, OK. Thank you Bob.” So I posted a picture that Bob took of me on larryclark.com and also a picture, the best picture ever taken of me, by Helmut Newton. He was a great photographer.
Olivier Zahm - He took a picture of you, too?
Larry Clark - At Cannes in 1995 when I did Kids. The New Yorker wanted to do a picture for a story about Kids, and they said that Richard Avedon would photograph me. I said “Fuck you, I’m not going to let Richard Avedon photograph me!” I told them that the only guy of the fashion ilk I would let photograph me would be Helmut. And it turned out Helmut lived in Monaco right across from Cannes. And he had just signed a contract with The New Yorker, so talk about luck. Helmut and June came over and Helmut took the photograph. It was just me and Helmut and his assistant and we drove around for a minute until he saw this place under a train trestle. I had no idea what he was doing, and he made this great photograph.
His thing is getting to know people and being someone that people will let him do this kind of stuff to. Everyone on /p/ will talk shit and say they could do it but good luck ever putting yourself out there like that and making a name for yourself despite having mediocre work
