Photos From Ron Galella, America’s Most Famous Paparazzi
Don’t get me wrong, I deplore paparazzi photography. The word paparazzi makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. The thought of stalking celebrities with my camera like a blood sucking mosquito seems not only like a giant weight on my moral conscious, but also totally boring. So naturally when I came across these photos on Time from Ron Galella “America’s Most Famous Paparazzi,” I started to feel nauseous upon reading the headline. Then I looked at them. I realized that these come from a time when the plague of the paparazzi wasn’t nearly what it is today. Many of these photos look like the celebrities almost welcomed his presence.
