Exactly how did Terry Richardson come to be the larger-than-life plaid-loving super-sleazy fashion photographer he is today? Oh, we thought you’d never ask! Enlightenment awaits at “Mom & Dad,” his latest gallery show and title of his new two-volume photo book, which launched in September at the ultra-hip boutique Colette in Paris. Mom, Annie, was a former Copacabana dancer who allegedly dated everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Keith Richards. Dad was Bob Richardson, shock fashion photographer of the ’60s and ’70s who left Annie and four-year-old Terry for Anjelica Huston, his muse for four years. As this is a Terry Richardson show, prepare to see his elderly mother topless.
