From his notoriously obsessive treatment of Jackie Onassis and the subsequent legal battles associated with it, to his alarmingly beautiful photographs of celebrities in the 60s and 70s, Galella has always been in a category of his own. Possessed of a unique talent to catch stars at moments when they seemed most alive, most human, most stylish, Galella was able to do something no other celebrity watcher was able to do: become a star himself. Featuring images of Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Cher, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando, Ali McGraw, Farrah Fawcett, Robert Redford, Raquel Welch, Mick Jagger and many, many more of the rich, famous and hounded.

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.
