Tazio Secchiaroli first began practicing photography as a ‘scattino’ (an itinerant photographer) that proposed walkers, tourists and American soldiers to portray them in the streets of Italy. Promptly, he became one of the 1950s most famous paparazzi to the point of inspiring Marcello Mastroianni’s character in Federico Fellini’s Dolce Vita, in 1959. After the release of the film, he decided to end his activity to become a set photographer, depicting almost all of Federico Fellini’s films but also those of Pier Paolo Pasolini and Michelangelo Antonioni. He captured various candid shots of celebrities such as Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot, laughing, waiting, playing, rehearsing or reflecting. Although in Tazio Secchiaroli’s era, paparazzi were the mischievous accomplices of stardom, their perception by the public worsened after Princess Diana died in a car accident while being pursued by paparazzi. And the Italian photographer did nothing to advocate their posture when he declared the couple was faulty of its accident by choosing to flee the photographers.
