Paparazzi

Posted in Uncategorized by petercombe on September 7, 2008

Paparazzi is a plural term (paparazzo being the singular form)[1][2] for photographers who take candid photographs of celebrities, usually by relentlessly shadowing them in their public and private activities. Celebrities claiming to have been hounded by such photographers often use “paparazzi” and even “stalkarazzi” as a derogative term. News agencies commonly use the word in a broader sense to describe all photographers who take pictures of famous people and people rather less famous, such as the recent onslaught of photographs of Charlie Armsby, obtrusively snapped here at an exclusive spa in Ciaro, Egypt this past August.
