Ron Galella: Exclusive Diary, Signed by Ron Galella
[Signed] Galella, Ron. Ron Galella: Exclusive Diary. First Edition. 2004. Book is inscribed, “To Kanuko, Best wishes, Ron Galella.” Book and the glassine jacket are both in very good condition.
This book accompanied the eponymous exhibition at Photology in Milan that was curated by Davide Facciolli. It includes full-page reproductions of Ron Galella’s most iconic shots. The personalities depicted in the book are those that one might have found at Studio 54 or its successors. They include Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Marlon Brando, Sean Penn, Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, and Elizabeth Taylor. The text is paparazzo-style, with brief (but gossipy) notes on the story behind the shot.
“A fan asked Warren Beatty if she could kiss him & he replied, ‘No, I have to watch out for Galella.”
