A Day In The Life Of The Paparazzi
A Day In The Life Of The Paparazzi features a living
vicariously approach to depicting the trade of the paparazzo, with
self-narrated adventures in every vignette and interspersed photographs that
aptly represent the craft. Through them, the author convincingly declares,
"I am part of the entertainment industry and without me or without the
other paparazzi out there, celebrities wouldn't be who they are." Follow
the author and photographer, Henry Flores, on his pursuit to get that perfect
shot. As he famously states, “Sometimes you only have seconds to react, so you
have to always be prepared, because those mere seconds are all you may get to
secure a good shot!”
A Day In The Life Of The Paparazzi curates shockingly
candid, under-produced portraits of larger-than-life personalities like Lindsay
Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Britney Spears into a work of art. The front cover of the book has a
picture of Lindsay Lohan surrounded by paparazzi, which he took while she was
at the peak of her career. The book begins with a raucous image of Lindsay
Lohan leaving Paris Hilton’s house at four o’clock in the morning, and ends
with intimate shots of Henry Flores and other celebrities. The pages in between
tell the story of celebrity and its business, but not in the slick, censored
way stars are usually portrayed. Publicists or Photoshop do not hinder Henry
Flores’ photographs. The book
contains 120 pages of celebrity photos along with some never before seen photos
of the starlets of today and possibly, the icons of tomorrow.
Henry Flores has been featured on ABC World News, NightLine,
Extra TV, and many other media productions, including documentaries from
Germany, Canada, and the USA. His
company, Buzz Foto, LLC, is responsible for having launched the first ever
modern day paparazzi gallery show, which was recognized by the LA Times,
TMZ.com, and other well known news media.
A Day In The Life Of The Paparazzi is published in limited

initially struck me with Henry Flores’ work was its rawness and at the same
time, magnificent sense of style.
looking for a young and gifted business partner to start my new photo agency,
BuzzFoto. As if by fate, I first discovered Henry’s unique style when I came
across his Out Of Sight Media webpage. There at the top of the page was a
striking image that ultimately started our partnership. It was a beautifully
composed and animated photograph of Mischa Barton as she descended down the
parking lot steps on Sunset Plaza. The Mischa photo evoked an incredible sense
of beauty and most importantly it was raw, and certainly unrehearsed. The
genius of the photo was undeniable.
the iconic imagery that emerged from popular culture back in the day is
virtually non-existent in today’s industry. The only true photojournalism today
is paparazzi and it all happens in the street. Henry Flores is an ace of that
trade and it is precisely that atmosphere, mixed with pure talent, that makes
Henry’s perspective unique. Henry has a gift and a knowledge that brings out
the elegance of Nicole Richie walking down Rodeo Drive or a deep-in-thought
Brad Pitt in the back seat of his limo. Capturing a mundane act and
transforming it into a work of art is what sets Henry apart in this business.
These are brilliant works of art that many times are too sophisticated to catch
the eye of the magazine photo editor.
is a tribute to his work and it’s just a matter of time before his photographs
grace the walls of museums and galleries worldwide.
