Hi all, From a quite recent Dutch newspaper (NRC Handelsblad 6&7 august 2011). I knew a figure like Weegee already shot paparazzi style celebrity photos back in the '30 to '50s, even using a large format camera, and he probably had more company of fellow news hounds at other occasions, but it still is nice to see a picture like this to remind us that nothing is really new in photography. There is a nice story to this picture as well, since, and probably not many people outside the Netherlands know this, the German emperor Wilhelm II was exiled to the Netherlands where he was granted asylum after World War I and restricted to stay in Huis Doorn, a mansion with park in the centre of the Netherlands. The paparazzi photographer actually attempted to photograph Wilhelm's 1934 birthday... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huis_Doorn Anyone actually know what type or brand of camera this is??
