Citing sexual harassment, Condé Nast has blacklisted fashion photographer Terry Richardson from working with any of its U.S. or international magazines, including Vogue, GQ, or Vanity Fair, multiple company spokespeople have confirmed to Folio:.
Over the weekend, British newspaper The Times published an article entitled “Why is Terry Richardson, who shot Miley Cyrus’s Wrecking Ball video, still feted by fashionistas?” The piece questioned why publications in the industry were still hiring Richardson despite him “gaining a reputation as the Harvey Weinstein of fashion.”
Then, early Monday, The Daily Telegraph obtained an internal memo to Condé Nast International staff in the morning from executive VP James Woolhouse. In the memo, Woolhouse stated: “I am writing to you on an important matter. Condé Nast would like to no longer work with the photographer Terry Richardson.”
“Condé Nast has nothing planned with him going forward,” a spokesman in the company’s New York office tells Folio:. “Sexual harassment of any kind is unacceptable and should not be tolerated.”
