Ron Galella: He Personified the Paparazzi—Brazen and Relentless in Chasing the Famous

From a New York Times obit by Paul Vitello headlined “Ron Galella, Celebrity-Hounding Photographer, Dies at 91”:

Ron Galella, the freelance photographer who relentlessly pursued Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis until a judge barred him from taking her picture, who pestered Marlon Brando until Brando broke his jaw, and who for better or worse helped define today’s boundary-challenged culture of celebrity, died at his home in Montville, N.J.

The cause was heart failure, said Geoffrey Croft, who edited Mr. Galella’s most recent book, “100 Iconic Photographs — A Retrospective.”
