Ron Galella in 1988
Ron Galella (born January 10, 1931) is an Americanmarker photographer, known as a pioneer paparazzo. Dubbed "Paparazzo Extraordinaire" by Newsweek, he is regarded as the most controversial celebrity photographer in the world, willing to take great risks to get the perfect shot. A Bronx native, Galella served as a United States Air Force photographer during the Korean conflict and attended the Art Center College of Designmarker in Los Angeles, California, graduating with a degree in Photojournalism in 1958.

Over Galella's nearly fifty-year career, he has been punched in the jaw by Marlon Brando in Chinatown, beaten up by Richard Burton's bodyguards in Mexico, hosed down by friends of Brigitte Bardot in Saint Tropez, had his tires slashed by Elvis Presley's guards in Queens and was sued twice by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Galella's photographs can be seen in hundreds of publications including Time, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Vanity Fair, People, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, the New York Times and Life. He is widely-known for his obsessive treatment of Jacqueline Kennedy and the subsequent legal battles associated with it.

He currently lives in New Jersey with his wife of 30 years, Betty Burke Galella.

Brando Incident

On June 12, 1973 Galella lost five teeth and suffered a broken jaw after actor Marlon Brando punched him outside a restaurant in Chinatown. Galella followed Brando, who was accompanied by talk show host Dick Cavett, after a taping of the Dick Cavett Show in New York City. Brando reportedly paid a $40,000 out-of-court settlement and suffered an infected hand.
