These black and white photos of Australian supermodel Abbey Lee Kershaw by Terry Richardson have an honest and endearing quality so often found in his candid portraits. The photos feature medium and close-up shots of the model in a black blazer. The candid nature of the shoot, which took place at his studio, adds to the intimate feel of the close-up portraits and is well-reflected by the monochromatic tones.

Kershaw and Richardson have worked together a number of times, and this photoshoot in particular is tame in relation to their past work. In 2009, Richardson faced controversy for a photoshoot involving Kershaw and two other models, as he faced criticism for his role in the sexually charged nature of the shoot. Kershaw went on to defend Richardson and his professional nature.
