Born in the Bronx, New York, in 1931, Ron Galella graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, with a degree in professional arts. During the Korean War, he was a ground and air photographer for the United States Air Force. In 1955, he became a freelance magazine and newspaper photographer, and went on to work for hundreds of publications around the world, including "Time, LIFE, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Vanity Fair, W, The New Yorker, The New York Times", and "Rolling Stone". America's most controversial celebrity photographer, he was dubbed "paparazzo extraordinaire" by "Newsweek", featured on the cover of "LIFE", punched in the jaw by Marlon Brando, beaten up by Richard Burton's bodyguards, and hosed down by Brigitte Bardot.
