Buzz Foto serves a large base of newspapers, magazines, web portals, television stations, book publishers, and e-media clients around the world.[1][3]

Buzz Foto held the first modern day paparazzi exhibition at the Seyhoun Gallery in Beverly Hills, California, USA.[4][5][6][7]

History[edit]

Buzz Foto was founded in 2006 by Brad Elterman and Henry Flores.[1][6][7] In 2007, they debuted their brand "Paparazzi As An Art Form!" in a televised interview on Extra[8]

Following that, ABC News did its first presentation on Buzz Foto. ABC presented the owners teaching a Parsons student, Justin Campbell. Campbell was ready for his first paparazzi experience on Stephen Colbert as Colbert made his way to his car after giving a presentation at a New York City Apple Inc. Store.[9]

In 2008, Buzz Foto was exhibited at the Seyhoun Gallery, owned by Maryam Seyhoun in West Hollywood, California, for its first paparazzi exhibition.[10] Seyhoun jumped at the idea of featuring this type of art, because in her words, "It is art!"[5]

Christine N. Ziemba, a correspondent for the Los Angeles Times, argued that "Paparazzi As An Art Form" may not fly, ending the article with "Don't laugh too hard. Andy Warhol's 'Gold Marilyn Monroe' now hangs at the Museum of Modern Art."[11]

The First Modern Day Paparazzi Exhibition ran from February 16–21, 2008, during which ABC News did another interview with Elterman and Flores.[6]
