Paparazzi (US: /ˌpɑːpəˈrɑːtsi/, UK: /ˌpæpəˈrætsi/; Italian: [papaˈrattsi];
singular: masculine paparazzo or feminine paparazza) are independent
photographers who take pictures of high-profile people, such as athletes,
entertainers, politicians, and other celebrities, typically while subjects
go about their usual life routines. Paparazzi tend to make a living by
selling their photographs to media outlets focusing on tabloid journalism
and sensationalism (such as gossip magazines).
A news photographer named Paparazzo (played by Walter Santesso in the 1960
film La Dolce Vita directed by Federico Fellini) is the eponym of the word
paparazzi. In his book Word and Phrase, Robert Hendrickson writes that
Fellini took the name from an Italian dialect word that describes a
particularly annoying noise, that of a buzzing mosquito. As Fellini said in
his interview to Time magazine, "Paparazzo ... suggests to me a buzzing
insect, hovering, darting, stinging." Those versions of the word's origin
are confirmed by Treccani, the most authoritative Italian encyclopaedia, but
sometimes contested. For example, in the Abruzzo dialect spoken by Ennio
Flaiano, co-scriptwriter of La Dolce Vita, the term paparazzo refers to the
local clam, Venerupis decussata, and is also used as a metaphor for the
shutter of a camera lens.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
