I’m not normally the kind of girl that goes nuts over a particular photographer but there are two photographers working in the industry today I get genuinely excited about. Tyler Shields and Terry Richardson. When I heard there was a set of Lady Gaga pics from a Terry Richardson photoshoot coming up, I hoped I’d get the chance to write about them and here I am. First, I love Lady Gaga. She bizarre, outrageous and has a knack for writing catchy pop songs. More than that though, she can legitimately sing. Terry Richardson is the perfect photographer to capture the essence of who Gaga is as a person and as a performer. His shots of Jared Leto are among my favorite pictures of all time but I have to admit, these Gaga pics are pretty close to the top of the list. There’s just something about them I like. Perhaps its the rawness of them or the glimpse they give us into what the Lady’s life is like off the stage. I love this whole series and I can’t wait to see more.
