According to a report from The Telegraph, notorious 52-year-old photographer Terry Richardson has been banned from working with all of Condé Nast's international publications, including Vogue, Vanity Fair, and W.

A letter, which was obtained by The Telegraph, was sent by Condé Nast COO James Woolhouse to the "country presidents", stating that all unpublished work by Richardson should be "killed or substituted with other material". The letter reads:

"I am writing to you on an important matter. Condé Nast would like to no longer work with the photographer Terry Richardson."

"Any shoots that have been commission[ed] or any shoots that have been completed but not yet published, should be killed and substituted with other material. Please could you confirm that this policy will be actioned in your market effective immediately.

Thank you for your support in this matter."

It's not explicitly stated why the action against the photographer has been taken, but it's believed to be in light of the current Harvey Weinstein controversy. Richardson, who's known for his sexually provocative work, has been accused of sexual assault in the past, but to date no criminal charges have ever been filed against him.

More info might be revealed by Condé Nast in the near future so stay tuned.
