One of the big themes I try and focus this site around is the exploitation of people in the industry. It has been going on since Hollywood started and it will probably continue going on because people want to be famous and want to make movies or be on television and people in power to make those decisions take advantage of this and prey on people. It is wrong and I want it to stop and the more it is discussed, the less likely it is to happen. I especially abhor the predators who go after teen actors and actresses because they are afraid of people who are legal. Terry Richardson is no different except that he has an advantage most producers don't and that is his subjects know they are going to have to get undressed when they are photographed by Terry and because of the celebrities that flock to him newbie models work with him thinking they can trust him. Read this (Graphic language and some partial nudity), and then think about all the rumors and stories about Terry and how celebrities who supposedly are all about equality and women's rights continue to work with the guy and praise him. If someone is successful in this industry then their crimes that should get them thrown in jail or shamed beyond redemption never seems to happen. cc: Woody Allen and Roman Polanski. bcc: Charlie Sheen and Chris Brown.
Now that Charlotte has come forward, I wonder if people like Lena Dunham will shoot again with Terry. Will Jared Leto invite him over for photos and drinks like he did the day after the Academy Awards.
