Al Pacino, by world famous paparazzo Ron Galella!

“For decades, Ron Galella (1931) was the world’s leading paparazzo, a tireless stalker with an Elmer Fudd laugh, so it was only natural that, when he jumped from behind a post with his Nikon flashing, the stars would respond to him. Often, they’d beckon coyly with a middle finger, or send over a bodyguard to suggest a tension-relieving service that he could perform on himself.” – The New Yorker
