You don’t have to be a celeb to know how the paparazzi works. They’ll pretty much risk life and limb for the perfect shot. But that’s nothing new! Since Walter Santesso played a paparazzo in Federico Fellini’s 1960’s movie La Dolce Vita, the name has been used by celebs and tabloid photographers. Paparazzi have run rampant throughout the world, and they have gone to great lengths in order to get the perfect celebrity shot.

Don’t Come Any Closer

At the Dolce Vita Gallery’s Arrivano I Paparazzi in Turin, Italy, people can see how dangerous life can be for the paparazzi. Celebrities have been fighting them ever since the golden days! On October, 20, 1960, La Dolce Vita actress Anita Ekberg faced a photographer with a bow and arrow in order to scare him off. Mission accomplished!

Paparazzo Extraordinaire

Ron Galella is a famous and controversial celeb photographer who posted several photos of former First Lady Jackie O., on his site, and he was even taken to court twice and slapped with restraining orders. Another stressful day at work!

Bardot’s Getaway

Photographer Vittorio La Verde exhibited this photo from 1965, in which French actress Brigitte Bardot, known for films like And God Created Woman (1956), looked horrified as she tried leaving The Hotel Forum in Rome. But somehow, she still managed to look oh-so-chic!

Better Run

Actor Walter Chiari, who dated actress Ava Gardner, got so tired of paparazzo Tazio Secchiaroli that he chased after him in Rome. The photo was posted on Camera Press, where it honored paparazzo Elio Sorci, who took this 1957 photo.
