Paparazzi is a plural term for photographers who take candid photographs of celebrities caught unaware, at moments when the subjects do not expect to be photographed, such as when they shop, eat at a restaurant, swim or lay on the beach. The term is an eponym originating in the 1960 film “La dolce vita” directed by Federico Fellini where one of the characters is a news photographer named Paparazzo.
