ARMIN LINKE & CORRADO CALVO: PAPARAZZI. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 600 pp. 33 x 24 cm. ISBN 9783944669380 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Snapshots of fast boats, dark sunglasses and dalliances -- everyone has seen these photographs in glossy magazines. Those who display themselves on the beaches of Sardinia in a way acknowledge the photographers lurking behind cameras. Celebrities and paparazzi are symbiotic, intertwined; they produce "secret images" in collaboration. Corrado Calvo -- one of the most famous paparazzi to date -- and photographer and filmmaker Armin Linke together have published a selection of sequences from over 80,000 color images from the last 10 years. However, a different kind of logic governs the images in Paparazzi in contrast to the published mass media image: their staged character becomes obvious. Whatever is cut out of the situations from the magazine images becomes evident in the sequential nature of the pictures, unexpectedly making these photos much more revealing and more narrative than the sensational sound bites published. A 600-page tome to satiate the most obsessed follower of the rich and famous.
