Ron Galella.

Before TMZ and Us Weekly existed - Ron Galella was the world's coolest paparazzi. I just read this article about him in NY mag and I'm totally fascinated. He was the original guy to seek out celebrities in their element, to humanize them. I love how he captures moments of them "in the wild". Life must have been so much simpler back then - and photos always look better in black and white! Check out more of his work here. (And yes, that's him following Brando in a helmut. Smart man.)

his work truly is stunning.
he photographed a lot of legendary folk - plus it was in black and white,
so it's hard not to love.
