Turin’s very own CAMERA – Italian Center for Photography – houses, until January 7th, 2018 a brand-new photography exhibition entitled “Arrive the Paparazzi! Photographers and Divas from Dolce Vita until Today”. Curated by experts Walter Guadagnini and Francesco Zanot.
The event focuses upon the complex relationship between famous people – actors, politicians, socialites etc. – and those people that both helped them reach celebrity status, by following them incessantly and reporting their every move, and at times managed to ruin their most intimate happy moments. The visitor will have the chance to take a peek into the private lives of Anita Ekberg, Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy, Lady D, courtesy of famous photographers such as Tazio Secchiaroli, Marcello Geppetti, Ron Galella, Lino Nanni, Alison Jackson, Ellen von Unwerth and Armin Linke. On display, more than 150 stolen pictures revealing the scandalous deeds of the famous, in Italy and elsewhere.
Or, as the curators themselves put it: “These are photographs that have marked forever the popular perception on public figures, actors, singers, politicians – most of all women. ‘Taken’ by private moments when, masks put aside, they turn to being (almost) common.”
