Celebrities have been photographed pretty much every which way: paparazzi-style, covering magazines, private mobile phone snaps. So it’s nice when someone captures them in a way that actually makes you look twice. This is what Italian-born Maurizio Galimberti, born in 1956 and full-time photographer since early 1990, does with his grid-like representation of faces, using the good old Polaroid.
The series is called “Celebrity Works” and features a few of our favorites: Johnny Depp, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sting, Benicio Del Toro, and Lady Gaga, George Clooney, Robert De Niro, and Javier Bardem.
