Mom & Dad strips Terry Richardson to his bare minimum: the series of portraits, letters and interiors document the very origins of Terry Richardson, his Mom and Dad. Treating the subject as any of his other shoots, Terry delves deeply and indiscriminately with his camera revealing the all too personal nature of his life.
As with all things Terry Richardson, there is no lacking of controversy, intimacy, and brutal honesty. The images follow Terry’s father, Bob Richardson (himself an outspoken photographer of a generation), through his gradual decline into madness and paranoia until his death. In turn, Terry’s mother, a colourful Californian, uncoyly gives us the finger as easily as a smile, all the while unfazed by her vulnerability after an accident left her partially paralysed. The intimate nature of the series shares something more than everything that Terry has so far given us. Not only is it a portrait of his Mom and Dad, it is a naked portrait of Terry himself.
Mom Dad is designed by acclaimed British art director Lee Swillingham of Suburbia Media. The series comes in two volumes with each dedicated to either parent. The two books are brought together and protected in an elegant slip case.
