Rock stars in Speedos 

Thursday, Jul 5 2012
Brad Elterman, who owns the paparazzi agency Buzz Foto, took his first published photo when he was 16. It showed Bob Dylan during a 1974 concert, his mouth open as if crying out in agony. That photo wasn't illicit, but after that, many of Elterman's candid shots involved sneaking around. In 1978, he caught musician Robert Plant playing soccer in Encino, wearing a Speedo. Plant yelled and pointed at the camera as Elterman shot. Most of the work Elterman has on view at Kana Manglapus in Venice is like that, raw and skillful -- it gives paparazzi a good name. 1346 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice; through Sept. 10. (646) 732-9309; kanamanglapus.com.
