In Powerhouse’s new book, No Pictures, Ron Galella explores the world of the paparazzo. Ron Galella didn’t invent the word paparazzo – Italian for
a buzzing mosquito – but he certainly personalized it by
redefining the relationship between the movie star and
the photographer. Now in the business of catching public
figures in private moments for more than three decades, the
nation’s most famous celebrity photojournalist presents the
next chapter in his ongoing visual diary of fame, wealth, and
success in America.
Widely acknowledged as the most controversial celebrity
photographer in the United States, Ron Galella has been
lauded as “the godfather of American paparazzo culture” by
Time and “Paparazzo Extraordinaire” by Newsweek.
