Fashion photographer Terry Richardson banned from working with Vogue and other major magazines

Fashion photographer Terry Richardson has been banned from working with Vogue magazine as well as some of the world's biggest selling titles.

Richardson (52) has been working in the fashion and celebrity portrait industry for years and his pictures are famously explicit and often controversial - famously directing a naked Miley Cyrus in her Wrecking Ball video and and shot Kylie Jenner's suggestive 2017 calendar.

He has worked with everyone from Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian to Miranda Kerr and Kate Moss.

Condé Nast International issued correspondence with staff members at all of its international titles that they would no longer be working with Richardson and any pending work by him should be "killed or substituted with other material", according to the Daily Telegraph .

Accusation of harassment and sexual exploitation by models have followed Richardson throughout his career, which he has always denied.

The email concerning an "important matter" as sent by Condé Nast's executive vice president and chief operating officer James Woolhouse on Monday. "Please could you confirm that this policy will be actioned in your market effective immediately. Thank you for your support in this matter," he wrote.

Condé Nast's impressive roster of titles includes Vanity Fair, GQ and W.

A reason for the ban was not given, but the Telegraph report suggests it could be in connection with a Sunday Times article which asked why the controversial photographer was still being "feted by fashionistas" in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Since more than 40 women have come forward accusing Weinstein of harassment and assault, a number of models, including Christy Turlington, have stated that sexual exploitation is rampant in the fashion industry, but did not name Richardson or any photographer in particular.

In 2001, Canadian model Liskula Cohen said she walked out of a Vogue photoshoot because she wasn't comfortable with his requests. "He wanted me to be completely naked and pretend to give one of the men a sex act, while he was also naked," she told New Statsmen, adding the men were not models, but his friends.

In 2014, after reportedly offering a model an appearance in Vogue in exchange for sex, a spokesperson for the American edition of the magazine said it had "no plans to work him" going forward.

Richardson issued a statement to the Huffington Post on Friday in response to allegations of sexual misconduct.

"I collaborated with consenting adult women who were fully aware of the nature of the work, and as is typical with any project, everyone signed release. I have never used an offer of work or a threat of rebuke to coerce someone into something that they did not want to do."
