Ron Galella, known as “the Godfather of U.S. paparazzi culture,” is regarded by many as the most controversial celebrity photographer in the world. He has gone to great lengths to get the perfect shot of people such as Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis and Marlon Brando, but his risks have been rewarded by landing exhibits at museums throughout the world. Ron’s passion for photojournalism has also given rise to many acclaimed books such as Disco Years, which was honored as Best Photography Book of 2006 by The New York Times.
