Publisher's Description: 
  
America's master paparazzo, Ron Galella, was willing to do almost anything to catch the famous unawares, and his tactics brought him a fame of his own. . . a notoriously pesky photographer, he helped create icons, redefine glamour and launch the age of modern celbrity. Vanity Fair, All celebrity all the time--Ron Galella was the godfather of the U.S. paparazzi culture. Time Magazine, Galella wooingly stalked Jackie Kennedy Onassis for years. His gaze-lust for her was so intense that any Galella picture of a Kennedy is, by magic default, a portrait of Jackie. Artforum Now in Paperback~Voyeur. Bandit. Hound. Ron Galella has been called every name in the book. In 1955, fresh out of the United States Air Force, he became a paparazzo--and redefined the genre. From his notoriously obsessive treatment of Jackie Onassis and the subsequent legal battles associated with it, to his alarmingly beautiful photographs of celebrities in the 60s and 70s, Galella has always been in a category of his own. Possessed of a unique talent to catch stars at moments when they seemed most alive, most human, most stylish, Galella was able to do something no other celebrity watcher was able to do: become a star himself. Featuring images of Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Cher, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando, Ali McGraw, Farrah Fawcett, Robert Redford, Raquel Welch, Mick Jagger and many, many more of the rich, famous and hounded.
