Item description for Terryworld Artist's Edition (#1) by Terry Richardson...

Who took 1970's porn esthetic and made it fashion chic? Terry Richardson. Who made the trailer park trendy and the tractor hat de rigueur? Richardson again. Who's equally at home in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Purple and Vice? Our boy Terry. Who uses his fashion money to fund an X-rated website? Yes, Richardson. And who can't resist getting his clothes off and jumping in front of his own lens? Well, that would be Terry Richardson as well. Porn stars, supermodels, transsexuals, hillbillies, friends, pets, and celebrities all do for his lens what they'll do for no other. And if anyone ever wonders why they did it, just blame it on Terryworld, where taboos are null and void, and fashion finds sex a perfect fit. The Artist's Edition comes in a clear plastic case with 4 personally selected limited-edition Terryprints and a Terrybear (a little teddy bear with Terry's face on it).

Terryworld: a masterpeice of smut  Aug 1, 2008
Not for everybody, be forewarned. If you have seen Terry's work before and find yourself craving a high dosage of trashy, sexually explicit and raw photography, this ones for you babe. Suck it in, and puke it up into the air while laying on your back, and let your own metaphorical vomit shower your filthy nude inner workings.

Great for the kids

BEST BUY of 2008 (and one of the best buy for 2004 too)......  Jul 23, 2008
HONEST, ENERGETIC, though totally unappetizing content sometimes, ALMOST PERFECT PHOTO COMPOSITION, winning other 'trend following' artist (Jergen Teller for example) by a mile! Somehow i've got a gut feeling mr richardson is going to be the picasso of this century.....a classic already!
Terror-World!  Jul 9, 2008
Terry's world might be, hell, it's MEANT to be a little scary for alot of people! Not in the sense of depicting violence or even real depravity but rather in the near-apocalypitc vulgarity with which it depicts post modern-hedonism, where sexual pleasure is about as idealized as a Tijuana donkey-show.

A man, laying half-passed-out on a bed, is seen puking, Terry (who appears in many of his own photos) pulls a tampon string out of a woman's vagina with his teeth, a guy pisses into his own mouth--you get the picture. It's a garbage-world where all the turn-ons are trashy. It is strangely arousing inspite of the yuck factor, but whether that's because it's sexy or because I'm just so jaded I'm happy for anything that can jolt and shock my deadened nerves, is up for debate!

Jolts and shocks are what Terryworld is all about. Terryworld is to erotica what Hustler was to Playboy. It's flat-out raunch,but with a fashion photographer's sensibility, which is to say that it does have some artistic merit beyond its novelty value, calling to mind the "provacateur" advertising campaigns of recent years, of which Terry himself has often played a part. His situation-heavy portraits are Tarantino-like movie stills from a movie I'm not sure I want to see.

Which brings me to my point; In the end, after all the money's come in, all the heads have turned and all the word-of-mouth has been exhausted, what is the final value of shock?

Remember when you were fourteen and looking at your stolen copy of Hustler, you felt kind of sick at the end of the ride. Your heart rate increased as you turned each page, your curiosity peaked to see the next lurid spectacle, you flipped faster and faster until finally it was over, you'd seen the whole thing--More, in fact, than your mind was capable of processing in one sitting. You were late for dinner, had a pressure headache, and a faint desire to go to church.

Welcome to Terryworld.
A great coffee table book  Feb 25, 2006
If your a fan of edgey, vice magazine type of photography and enjoy the seedy side of life, then by all means man, get this book!
different and fascinating  Feb 13, 2006
i pretty much knew what the book was like since i'd seen it in bookstores several times. i always concluded that is not for me, but time after time i kept going back to it and kept seeing Terry's photos in magazines and so finally i got it.

the book's huge, with a LOT of photos. i'm still not a fan of Terry but i respect his style and originality and bravery a lot. he uses a snapshot cam, and it shows. that sounds bad...and most people think upon seeing the pics 'these are snapshots! i can do this myself!'. well, think twice, it is not in fact that easy. Terry can handle the medium in a whole different way and as a photographer myself i appreciate this skill. his subject matters are however what usually turns peoples heads...the genitalia shows here and there, and it's not subtle. Terry is a part of the photos himself too sometimes, and he shows he's ready to give just as much as himself as the models. what i like specifically is the humor and brave subjects, daring to show things in a new or different way. or just really bluntly.

more specifically his photos are of people, often naked and daring, posed or dressed funny. some are celebrities, others are not. the snapshot camera gives the photos a blunt 'in your face'-look and i don't think the photos are in any way manipulated, at least they look very raw and like something from a snapshot camera should. his website shoulf give you a better idea of the content.

besides the photos, i think this book is worth having because it's a part of photography history, different and i'm sure he will be remembered as such.
