We know Terry Richardson as one of the most provocative photographers of his generation. Either you love him or you don’t. Some say it’s cool to a) have so many outrageous thoughts and b) actually convert those thoughts in photos with c) yourself as the leading character - preferably nude. Others say that’s just gross. Now, imagine this bloke following Lady Gaga for a year. Fireworks. Turns out Gaga is so controversial that she actually makes Terry Richardson look a bit dull. Something else we hadn’t seen form Terry Richardson yet: he’s actually a pretty decent photographer. Then again, he visited over 30 of Gaga's Monster Ball concerts (that’s an achievement) and took more than 100,000 pictures, so he had plenty of footage to choose from. Design-wise, some pictures are not placed all that smart. You actually have to fold the pages and completely open the book to the point where it crunches in order to understand the entire photo. And that is an activity we are not particularly fond of.
