Tiesto just took part in a photo shoot with the extremely controversial Terry Richardson. For those unfamiliar with Richardson, he is one of the most famous photographers in the world. His portraits of celebrities shot against a white background with a bright flash have become iconic. However, Richardson has been accused by countless women of taking advantage of his influence and making unwanted sexual advances. To view the long list of disgusting accusations made against Richardson, click here. In fact, many celebrities and companies have given Richardson the cold shoulder due to the horrifying actions he's been accused of. Richardson is innocent until proven guilty, but he remains a controversial figure.
Tiesto is an international star, but it's still a bit surprising to see him as Richardson's latest subject. Richardson has taken photos of Barack Obama, Jared Leto, Miley Cyrus, and many other A-list stars. Kudos to Tiesto for earning a photo shoot with one of the world's top photographers. This is another example of dance music showing its growing importance. For Tiesto to be photographed by someone who took photos of the POTUS is pretty stunning.
The photo set has a lot of dance music fans scratching their heads, though. To be honest, some of the photos look painfully awkward. Check out the photo set below, courtesy of Richardson's Tumblr.
