Jezebel’s fashion editor Jenna Sauers is quoted as saying, “a lot of people tolerate it in public because of his extraordinary power within the industry. In private I think many are very disturbed by his history of behaviour with many of the models he works with.”
In interview Richardson has confided “At first, I’d just want to do a few nude shots, so I’d take off my clothes, too … I’d even give the camera to the model and get her to shoot me for a while. It’s about creating a vibe, getting people relaxed and excited. When that happens you can do anything. I don’t think I’m a sex addict, but I do have issues. Maybe it’s the psychological thing that I was a shy kid, and now I’m this powerful guy with his boner, dominating all these girls”.
A September 2004 edition of The New York Observer published the following: “A lot of it starts with me saying to a girl, ‘Do you want to do nudes?’ And they’re like, ‘I don’t want to be naked,'” said Mr. Richardson. “So I say, ‘ I’ll be naked and you take the pictures. You can have the camera. You can have the phallus.'” Everyone, including the assistants, was always armed with a camera. Mr. Richardson liked to say he wouldn’t ask someone to do anything he wouldn’t first do himself: “And since I’m in so many of the pictures, aren’t I objectifying myself a bit?”
