The photographic portfolio of Italian photographer Daniele Lo Presti read like a guest list at an awards ceremony. Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Rihanna and Beyonce had all found themselves splashed across newspapers and magazines thanks to Lo Presti.
Stefano Dolce and Domenica Gabbana were not always happy about the attention they received from him and it was Lo Presti who was behind the glamour photographs of Sara Tommasi who was linked to Silvio Berlusconni and his famous parties.
Now, at the age of 42 he’s dead. Found on a riverbank in Rome, a single gunshot wound in the center of his forehead.
Lo Presti was good at his job, often taking pictures that showed stars in a less than favourable light. The bad hair day photographs of the rich and famous were hot property, but often these celebrities took exception to being shown as the regular human beings they really were, preferring the more ascetically pleasing glamour shots that showed them in their full glory.
Even more unpopular were the photographs that brought illicit liaisons and private moments into the public domain.
“It’s a classical sign of an ordered hit. We are not ruling out a connection between his work and his death, and we are looking through his most recent assignments as well as telephone and computer records” Commented a police officer who refused to be named.
With so many of the people Lo Presti photographed supposedly having connections with the Illuminati it’s no wonder his death has caused so much speculation.
Five years ago the Lo Presti family, and the photographers car had been targeted in a series of arson attacks but police do not feel the incidents are connected with his death. Officially this is all they have said so far. They have not indicated the direction the investigation will be going in or if any of his often unwilling subjects will be questioned.
Mr Lo Presti worked for an agency called LaPresse. Last month another one of their photographers 52 year old Danilo Cerreti died in a mystery motorbike accident in Rome. Despite appeals for help no one has come forward with any information about the accident.
