Papz! Scenes in the making, is a photographic essay regarding the impact, relevance and influence of celebrity news in the American culture today by exploring the life of paparazzi photographers. For three month I posed as an out of state paparazzo in order to document the fast pace lives of working paparazzi in Hollywood. Showcasing the rush and ecstasy of the celebrity chase, as well as the shame and calamity of the tabloid spreads, Papz! Invades the world of celebrity stardom and the men, who we may argue, are the first stop in creating the tabloid gossip.
