Peter Borsari


Photographer Peter C. Borsari, whose celebrity snapshots over three decades included candid moments of Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor and Jack Nicholson, died May 29 of complications from elective knee surgery in Los Angeles. He was 67.

A native of Zurich, Switzerland, Borsari moved to Los Angeles in the mid-1960s and quickly joined an elite cadre of successful celebrity photographers. His photos of Taylor and Richard Burton in Mexico launched his career.

Hollywood studios often hired Borsari to take photos at parties and weddings, including the nuptials of Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner and the wedding of Harry Hamlin and Nicollette Sheridan.

Borsari provided photos for magazines, newspapers and industry publications worldwide. His clients included Columbia, Tri-Star, Warner Bros. and Universal.
