Report: Terry Richardson Blacklisted by Top Fashion Magazines

Fashion photographer Terry Richardson has reportedly been blacklisted by a number of top fashion magazines published by the media group Condé Nast International. An internal email sent out Monday by James Woolhouse, the company’s executive vice president and chief operating officer, warned the heads of several leading publications to sever ties with the New York-based photographer, the Daily Telegraph reports. Condé Nast International publishes Vogue, Glamour, Vanity Fair, and GQ, among other well-known titles. “Condé Nast would like to no longer work with the photographer Terry Richardson. Any shoots that have been commission[ed] or any shoots that have been completed but not yet published, should be killed and substituted with other material,” the email said, according to the report. Woolhouse provided no reason for the new policy, but it comes amid increasing scrutiny over sexual harassment and misconduct in Hollywood and the fashion industry in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Richardson has repeatedly been accused of sexually exploiting models over the years, though he has denied the allegations.
