They’re back! The Paparazzi Dogs have left the Pearl Street Triangle in Dumbo, and resettled at the Ruth Wittenberg Triangle at the intersection of Greenwich Avenue, Avenue of the Americas, and Eighth Street. Created by Australian husband and wife team of Gillie and Marc, The Paparazzi Dogs have cameras aimed at the doors to C. O. Bigelow Apothecaries, the oldest surviving apothecary in the United States. No word on how long the four sculptures will be at that location.
The Paparazzi Dogs each have their own names – Joel, Charlie, Rocky, Samuel – and were created deliberately to “be photographed by the paparazzi,” the artists have said, to explain the “pack mentality of the media and how we hunt celebrities to get their photo.”
