Pic of the Day: Terry Richardson’s Jersey Shore Portraits

We’ve already told you about photographer Terry Richardson’s Tumblr, which focuses on the likes of emaciated, coked-out models, dudes in flannel, and an odd old woman he claims is his mother. Yesterday Richardson posted some photos he snapped of The Jersey Shore‘s male cast members for an upcoming issue of Interview Magazine. They’re interesting; somehow he made the Situation and Pauly D appear slightly less Juicehead, and more “yes, my tattoos are from Williamsburg.” More after the jump.

Is this the most recognizable hair in TV?

Vinny’s lack of armpit hair is slightly disturbing, but the kid seems to have jacked up since the summer.

We appreciate the color coordination here.

What do you think of Richardson’s work? Would you like to see him tackle the female cast members next?
