This limited edition of Paparazzo contains an exclusive print by Elio Sorci. Within the handmade laser-cut box rests a wax sealed custom gold envelope, which contains a rare archival quality digital print, which was specially produced on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Baryta. Paparazzo is the first definitive collection of the award-winning photography of Elio Sorci; spanning across three decades.

The post-Fascist Italy of the early 1950s saw an explosion in international film production, and as stars flocked to Rome followed by models, playboys, and monarchs the city was transformed. A small band of press photographers were the very first to document this Hollywood on the Tiber phenomenon, and in doing so they revolutionised their art form forever.

These men would later be dubbed the paparazzi, and they changed the face of photo-journalism. Among their number was Elio Sorci. Sorci was a strategic mastermind, with an independent spirit and unparalleled appetite for adventure that made him a leader in his field (his was the image that finally confirmed the Elizabeth Taylor Richard Burton affair).

Sorci's stripped-back images depict this world just as it was, often tinged with vulgarity and essentially superficial, but thrilling, compelling, and seductive.
