This series of photographs from and of Terry Richardson are not for the meek. Richardson appears here with a variety of women, engaging in all sorts of sexual frivolity. Joyful it does appear, though. The women, and Richardson, are all clearly having a grand old time, in bed, in the kitchen, and posing for the camera as though at a cocktail party. The photographs are indeed provocative and titillating, but there is an edge that tempers the eroticism. The result is that these photographs simply are. As real as can be, they are a record of Terry Richardson as a man and as an Artist, exuding both a sense of fun and scorning shame.
FROM THE ARTIST:
"'Kibosh' is the most important book of my career. This is my life's work. From the age of 16 when I first started to photograph for fun and then as a profession, I have always thought of 'Kibosh' as the summary of my career. 'Kibosh' is my book, the most intimate part of me as a photographer. I believe that the phrase, 'I would never ask anyone to do something that I myself would not do' from the introduction of this book, shows the profound respect that I have for the people who collaborated in the realization of this work, which for me is so important. For the realization of 'Kibosh' I stopped working, for months I dedicated myself entirely to collecting the photos and planning the layout (…) To tell people about yourself using images is something that requires time, lots of time, perhaps a lifetime, and this is 'Kibosh.'"
With these words Terry Richardson summarized the meaning of his work: to give a picture to fun. In fact all the protagonists of his pictures are having fun and enjoy life. Even in the advertising campaigns for fashion, even if more restrained, leak out from images all the senses, in every picture of terry Richardson there is the strong and tangible taste for "pleasures" of life...
After having been photographing everyday life in a bold and uninhibited manner, shooting himself, motorcycle gangs, punk and metal bands that he grew up with, Terry Richardson has begun his ascent in the 90s with a series of shows held in international art galleries as well as some collaborations with famous fashion magazines such as i-D, Dazed and Confused, Vogue, and Harper's Bazaar. Richardson shot campaigns for many famous fashion brands (YSL, Gucci, Levi's, Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger, Prada, etc.) and in 1997 started a collaboration with Italian brand Sisley by creating one of the most transgressive and talked-about campaign ever seen in Italy.
