Richardson has photographed the likes of Lady Gaga and Rihanna, and he collaborated with Kylie Jenner to create a raunchy calendar in 2016.
But his time as a contributor to many major fashion publications appears to be over as The Telegraph claims to have seen an email that was circulated at Condé Nast, stating the dismissal of any projects with Richardson, effective immediately.
The email did not state the reason for this severance of ties.
Known to create sexually explicit imagery with his sharp and frank photography, Richardson was a favourite among certain celebrities.
Fashion magazines too, seemed to applaud his work as they continually featured his sexually provocative editorials.
But his creative taste hasn’t been called into question. Unlike his alleged off-camera behaviour.
But, unlike the success of the #metoo campaign, back then (from 2010 to 2015) after women spoke up, the industry was not keen to distance itself from Richardson.
In 2014 Richardson denied accusations of sexual harassment made against him.
A Conde Nast spokesperson confirmed they would not be commenting on this topic.
