About this title

Synopsis:

The definitive visual diary of the New York club scene in the seventies, Disco Years presents an astounding collection of photographs from America’s premier nightlife photographer, Ron Galella. His candid shots of the era’s fabulous fashionistas, indulgent rock idols, outlandish artists, mystical muses, jet-setting socialities, and fantastic freaks reveal the delicious decadence that defined the decade.

Disco Years brings us the high life, literally and figuratively. Featuring unforgettable photographs of Andy Warhol, Elizabeth Taylor, Halston, Steve Rubell, Ian Schrager, Liza Minnelli, Grace Jones, Madonna, Diane von Furstenberg, Mick and Bianca Jagger, Keith Richards, Truman Capote, Gloria Vanderbilt, Dolly Parton, Brooke Shields, Cher, Raquel Welch, David Bowie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michael Jackson, and John Belushi, among countless others, Disco Years takes us back to a time when skiing was an indoor activity, velvet ropes were high security, and incredible style was the only requirement.

About the Author:

Widely acknowledged as the most controversial celebrity photographer in the United States, Ron Galella has been lauded as "the godfather of American paparazzo culture" by Time, and "Paparazzo Extraordinaire" by Newsweek. A native New Yorker, Galella earned a degree in photojournalism from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. He began his career as a freelance magazine and newspaper photographer in 1955, and has since been sued by Jacqueline Onassis, punched by Marlon Brando, and hosed down by friends of Brigitte Bardot. Galella’s previous books include Jacqueline (Sheed & Ward, 1974), Offguard: A Paparazzo Look at the Beautiful People (McGraw-Hill, 1976), The Photographs of Ron Galella 1965–1989 (Greybull Press, 2003), and Ron Galella: Exclusive Diary (Photology, 2005). His most recent shows were held at the Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh; the Paul Kasmin Gallery, New York; the Holt Renfrew Flick Exhibition, Toronto; and his latest, Superstar, at Kunstforum Wien, Vienna.
