Americas fascination with blockbuster celebrities bad behavior, and the paparazzi culture that surrounds them, is at the heart of local photog Peter Buggs work. Bugg spent years as interning at an L.A. paparazzi agency. His unique repertoire includes such installations as Target Audience, which put Justin Beiber and other celebs in Che Guevaras iconic place.
Buggs latest showcase, Sweet & Low, continues this theme and also gives new meaning to the term glitterati, as it features a series of tabloid covers and spreads dipped in a saturated sugar solution, resulting in a crystal-like patina.
