Last chance to visit Paparazzo Extraordinaire an exhibition of almost 150 B&W photographs by US photographer Ron Galella at C/O Berlin. Don’t miss out.
How do you feel about paparazzi? Love them for letting you take a glimpse into stardom? Or hate them cause they annoy the living daylights out of everyone? All in all it’s a mixed bag I think. They fuel the fire which makes celebrities who and what they are, but at times can also go overboard and invade privacy in the worst of ways. Do celebrities have any privacy left at all? Well that’s another issue all together.
The Ron Galella exhibition in the Berlin Mitte, explores the career of one the men who pioneered this genre of photography and paved the way for others to follow suit.
From Sean Penn to Mick Jagger to Jackie O and Andy Warhol. Galella had a go at pretty much every star of his time. His photos are not staged. They are as candid as ever and yet remain kind to the subject. Glitz and glamour take a back seat in his photos where the stars seem a little closer to earth.
But don’t take my word for it. Visit C/O Berlin until February, 26, 2012 and take a look for yourself.

Found photographs are little treasures chanced upon by photographers, historians, and enthusiasts of vintage curio. At a boot fair, ehmahh found a boxful of Kodachrome slides which turned out to be travel snapshots taken in Egypt by an unknown traveler almost 50 years ago.
Last year, Lomography UK had the honor of hosting an exhibition by music photographer Tom Sheehan. Tom has photographed everyone from Mick Jagger, The Smiths, The Charlatans, Tom Waits, David Byrne to name just a few! We lent him a Petzval lens and asked him to test it on a shoot, and he granted us an exclusive interview.

Mel Brackstone introduced herself as an "old woman with a love of the surreal." Her energy is palpable; with the soft delicacy in her photos, she comes across as an old soul that sees through young eyes. She is self taught and lives in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, She discovered the Petzval Lens in 2014.
On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
