Ron Galella – Smash His Camera

Posted on by Tim Mantoani

I have been getting a bunch of calls about Ron and the HBO documentary “Smash His Camera”. I photographed Ron in New York for my Behind Photographs Project a couple years back. After the shoot, Ron was kind enough to send me 4 different signed copies of his books. Like him or not, there are some amazing images in his library, he truly has documented a generation.
