"...In this first book on the premiere paparazzo - who sadly did not live to see its completion - 200 stunning duotone photographs illustrate Secchiaroli's career from his beginnings as a photojournalist, to his appointment as Fellini's set photographer; to his twenty-year stint as Sophia Loren's personal photographer. Diego Mormorio, photography historian and critic, adds a moving portrait of the man behind the camera, and surveys his work in its historical context. Ultimately leaving his paparazzo experiences behind, Secchiaroli worked on film sets and in private sittings, creating a gallery of subtle glances, sensuous gestures, and beautiful portraits in which a glamorous Italy comes alive."
