Love him or hate him, there’s no denying fashion photographer Terry Richardson has carved a unique identity for himself, along with a level of name recognition that most photogs would kill for. His hard flash photography is quickly followed by his own self-styled image — toothy grin, thumbs-up sign, ubiquitous flannel shirt and oversized glasses — as defining trademarks, and his penchant for the leering, scandalous narrative hasn’t deterred any of the hordes of A-list celebrities from seeking his services. It’s a wonder, then, that it’s taken this long for Terry Richardson to stage his first solo exhibition in Los Angeles. Composed of over 25 of his most recent photos, TERRYWOOD is scheduled to open February 24th at OHWOW gallery. The installation represents the collision of Terryworld with Hollywood, wherein familiar Tinseltown tropes are recontextualized through Terry’s distinctive lens.
Exhibition Dates: February 24th, 2012 (Friday) March 31st, 2012 (Saturday)
