Jacqueline by Ron Gallela, Photographer, First Edition
A beautiful copy of this hard-to-find book by photographer Ron Galella.
Galella, the godfather of US paparazzi culture, was mildly obsessed with Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. Galella took literally thousands of candid shots of the legendary style icon from 1968 through 1981, and his photographs remain the most enduring, most beautiful, and most revealing images of her in existence. In fact, it is widely held that our collective memory of Jackie would be non-existent if it weren’t for Ron Galella, though his body of work did not come by easy means.
This 200 page oversized hardcover book was published by Sheed & Ward, New York, 1974, and is a first edition. It has its original dust jacket which is in excellent condition with very little wear. The book measures 11-1/2" by 8-3/4." Nice, clean tight copy.
