On the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death, we take a deep dive into the complicated legacy of celebrity culture and the impact of the paparazzi. ⠀
“Memorializing Diana’s death 20 years later serves many purposes, but perhaps a lesson should be to critically examine the hunger that drives us to check celebrities’ Instagram pages, follow them down the street, sneer when they triumph and cheer when they fail. Who knows how Princess Diana would have navigated this new landscape had she survived? But judging by her years of suffering at the hands of press and the public, one thing’s for sure: She would have wanted us to do better.” ⠀
