Earlier this year, noted photographer and digital image pioneer, Brad Elterman, launched his own line of custom T-shirts under the brand name "Paparazzi Chic".
Having chronicled and documented celebrities and faces from the world's of fashion and music since the early 70s, Elterman's collection of tees were a natural progression of his signature visual style, featuring eye-catching slogans about fame and celebrity culture including "No Photos," "No Stalking," "Stop Taking My Photo," "Call My Agent," and "PR Nightmare" (that's one for Helen Flanagan right there).
Elterman then teamed up with former The Academy Is frontman, William Beckett, to launch "Summer 77", his latest collection of tees which include a vintage Joan Jett photo taken by Elterman in 1977 backstage at The Whiskey A Go Go - there's even one in grey marle featuring a silkscreened pic of the iconic lensman himself, also shot in 1977 (pic above).
All of the tees are available to purchase via Factory 77 and if you like Elterman's hipster vibe, snapshot-like style, then check out his Tumblr which is all kinds of cool, HERE.
