Terry Richardson's full letter denying the sexual harassment claims against him is now online, both at Page Six and on the Huffington Post under his byline. In the letter, Richardson doesn't actually say exactly what he's been accused of, but he does compare the sexual imagery in his work to that of Robert Mapplethorpe and Helmut Newton. He writes that reports of harassment against him are part of an "on-going quest for controversy-generated page views" which "does a disservice not only to the spirit of artistic endeavor, but most importantly, to the real victims of exploitation and abuse."
