Terry Richardson does Jersey Shore

Terry Richardson, the photographer, has always always straddled two worlds: high art and lowbrow. His racy and in-your-face pictures are often deemed real. Gritty. Harsh. And, at times, sexy.

The cast of Jersey Shore, MTV’s big hit about beach-bum guidos, straddle, well, um, one world. Lowbrow baby! Their racy and in-your-face TV show was gritty and harsh too. And, I cannot believe I am admitting this, sexy. It seems only fitting then that the cast was recently photographed by Richardson for Interview Magazine. The below shot of Pauly D’s iconic hair is the icing on the cake. Or the hair gel on the guido-fro if that’s your thing.
