Portraiture is photography of a person or group of people that displays the expression, personality, and mood of the subject. When it comes to portraying celebrities, only the masters have that authorization. Terry Richardson is one of them. Richardson is an American photographer who has shot campaigns for many grand fashion designers and notable magazines. His work consists mainly of putting high-profile celebrities in mundane situations and photographing them using traditionally pedestrian methods, such as the use of an instant camera. His work also explores ideas of sexuality. Here are some of his best portraits of the celebrities!
