Terry Richardson Would Rather Go Naked Than Retouch

terry_banana.jpgYou may recall that photographer Terry Richardson welcomed 2009 with a racy calendar for Vogue Paris that celebrated the joys of Louis Vuitton lingerie. The high-profile project, styled by Carine Roitfeld, led to the ultimate calendar gig: the much anticipated Pirelli calendar, now in its forty-sixth year of delighting corporate tire buyers worldwide. Richardson shot the 2010 edition, which debuted last week in London, on the beaches of Trancoso, Brazil. In contrast to the collaged exoticism of Peter Beard‘s 2009 Pirelli calendar, Richardson went for an old-school vibe in steamy shots that conjure the ’70s and are free of retouching. Among the props bandied about by models such as Lily Cole and Miranda Kerr are tires and Brazilian wildlife, including some very happy sloths. For Richardson, less is always more. “My technique is the absence of technique,” he has said.
