Shooting with fast black and white film, often using flash guns, paparazzi photographers specialized in catching celebrities at vulnerable, unguarded moments, and the stark images they created became part of the culture of fame in the late 20th century. Yet the best of these paparazzi—like Bruno Mouron and Pascal Rostain, founders of the Sphinx agency in Paris—could capture something essential and human about their subjects in these candid images. More than 100 such portraits are collected in this album—many filling two oversized pages—depicting personalities like Brigitte Bardot, Elizabeth Taylor, Jack Nicholson, Grace Kelly, Michael Jackson, Jackie Kennedy, Pope John Paul II, Richard Nixon, and Kate Moss.
