bob richardson: father of terry

>>  He passed away two years ago, leaving behind a legacy of fantastic fashion photography from the sixties and seventies.  Unfortunately, he destroyed or lost most of his work during his later years, when he was homeless. 
He was notorious for being impossible to work with.  But when he did work, what he produced -- well, it was hardly fodder for destruction.  In fact, it was beautiful, powerful, and every photo I see gives me an insatiable hunger to see more.  I hope Terry keeps the promise that he made upon Bob's death, to produce a monograph and an autobiography of his father and his pictures -- I can't wait to see more like this one  Bob took in 1972 of Angelica Huston, his muse and girlfriend of the time, for Italian Vogue, posing with model Lipp Jens as her Nazi lover.
Bobrichardson_vogueit_1972UPDATE:  It looks like Terry did keep his promise after all --
the book is being published in September of the year.  Fantastic.
