Terry Richardson, displaced from his old photography studio on the Bowery by a high-end fitness chain, was at his new space, an unadorned floor-through loft down the street. Wood floor, tin ceiling, brick walls interrupted by white swaths of Sheetrock. Four employees sat working quietly on Macs. Pandora was tuned to Elvis Presley Radio. Like a little cancer. People can just do whatever they want, say whatever they want, be totally anonymous. It was late April. All that was missing was the toothy smile and thumbs-up gesture present in most pictures of him. But Richardson occupies a singular, controversial position in photography.

Close, but no cigar. The dark-haired woman caught in a compromising sexual position with noted fashion photographer Terry Richardson is not "The Firm" actress Juliette Lewis , her publicist said in a statement Wednesday. When the image of a woman with a passing resemblance to Lewis, 38, first surfaced on the Internet this week, it quickly spread to many gossip outlets. In the email, the publicist did admit that although "it is correct that she did a shoot with Terry several years ago," the photo is "absolutely not a shot from that shoot, nor does this image even have her in it.
There's an old Terry Richardson photo going around the Internet that depicts the sexual harass-y fashion photographer in flagrante with an unidentified woman. Who is she? Gawker seems to find this argument convincing, but the actress's publicist issued an unequivocal denial — and even flacks rarely outright lie. And although Lewis and Richardson did a shoot together that dates to approximately the right period, Lewis's hair in those photos is significantly shorter and a little bit redder than the woman in the picture. The woman in the photo also seems younger than Lewis. So what do we know about this photo? A source familiar with Richardson's studio says it was definitely taken there "a few years ago," because the paintings on the wall have changed. It depicts the photographer best known for saying things about breaking into modeling like, "It's not who you know, it's who you blow!
Rebuttal: Juliette Lewis, pictured at a press day for her TV series three weeks ago is not in the nude photos. A nude photograph of a woman posted on the Internet earlier this week is not Juliette Lewis , contrary to initial reports. In an email to website Gawker, who first posted the shot, the publicist for the year-old actress wrote that: 'The image that you have on your site right now is not of her. The photograph features a naked woman in a compromising position with a man reported by the website to be famed photographer Terry Richardson. Asking that the shot be 'taken down immediately,' the publicist added: 'It is correct that she did a shoot with Terry several years ago but this is absolutely not a shot from that shoot nor does this image even have her in it. The image of the woman, who bears a passing resemblance to Lewis quickly spread to other websites.
