    Isnt he some how connected to Vice.. maybe im thinking of the wrong guy. I actually like what was posted (In the sense that im so used to seeing shitty black and white photo's of girls sitting on chairs looking depressed that its a breath of fresh air) - with the exception of the superman photo, However i know nothing of photography, so if these photo's suck im in the dark about it.

    hes pretty much a regular photographer for vice magazine. ive seen polaroids of his before in person and theyre pretty funny. seems as if dude is just having a blast taking pics of people doing drugs, naked asian girls, and random street shit. all in all, hes a good photographer.

    damnit, firewall wont let me see the site.
    i really like the stuff ive seen from him in the past.

    the problem with dudes work is that its not technical, and from what i've seen, it's not even insanely unique, it's just dependent on being in all the wrong places at all the right times...which i guess is sort of an art, but it's a very fine line. i could easily see athousand copy cats doing similar stuff. this isnt me knocking him by the way, he does his thing, and i both like and respect it, but i also think it's kind of like neckface...i dont mind that eh does it, but once everyone started doing it, i'd hate it all.

    whatever. that girl needs to shave her punani.

    ^ some of his campaign works are really well done.
    There's no technical flaws in them and it's clearly a big
    money studio set up. I'm sure the people at Gucci are saying:

    'lets get that richardson to do it but send people down to make
    damn sure he doesnt blow the budget on ski and hookers'

    his pictures are interesting, but i pretty much consider them glorified porn.

    pat o'dell, another vice photographer said it best on his site. "His pictures were so dirty new levels that I don't think anyone else could ever match them. At least he raised the perv bar so high that the situaish's won't be shocked anymore when we're like "how about we try the Catholic school girl uniform this time?"

    he just seems like a creepy, pervy type of guy who has a good eye for next level offensiveness, maybe not for photography. what do i know, though?

    hes making money and having a good time, i can appreciate that. he found a good niche in the photog world and is making the best of it.

    but yeah.... the 'glorified (amature) porn' label does tend to stick for a reason.

    i like all those photos, but i mean, 1 semester at any community college will teach you how to set up lights, ya know? and with the budget he's working with, anything can be touched up. not to say it needs to be, just saying that even with this stuff, technical ingenuity isnt what makes them fresh.

    even if it is amature porn, still, it's very 'real' and thats what makes it cool. the people are ugly, the 'heroin chic' is actual heroin, not eye shadow. i like stuff like that. if he really is some perverse, sick fuck just makes it even better. if he was some rich art school kid, it would reak of pretention, but since he really probably does drive a utility van and is a pedophile, it's cool.

    dont forget how often his photos feature his 'T-Bone'.
    You wont find pretentious art students will to expose/exploit
    themselves like he does.

    I consider him more of a director than a photographer.
    He clearly knows how to get a preformance out of his models
    and does a great job capturing it on film.

    T-Bone?
    i'm assuming this must be his 'wang'? ha.

    and yeah, i agree. i think dude is more of a personality with a camera, than a 'photographer'. every photographer gives his subject 'direction', but i think most the time its sort of just random generic cues 'make love to the camera, give me sexy' etc. from what ive seen of dude, it's a lot more 'personal'. i mean, sticking your thumb in juliette lewis's mouth is hillarious and i dont even know why, ya know? just cause its ridiculous. because no other 'professional' photographer would do that. it almost makes the photo entirely about him, and she's just their to facilitate it or something. i dont know. dude is amusing.
    post more.
