Father, It's Not Time To Make A Change

I find this self-portrait of Terry Richardson with his father, Bob, very moving. Let's just say it pulls at the heart strings. It's a sweet moment between father and son, and it feels very true. The kiss to the temple, the shut eyelids, the intimacy and closeness of the composition. It's a rare feeling to be portrayed by a Terry photo, where the more typical is a bit sexy (to say the least). It's refreshing to get a glimpse into the more vulnerable side of Mr. Richardson.
