The remainder of the book are full page plates with occasional collages in sepia depicting the garish, loud and tawdry excesses of the time wrapped in celebrity overkill of the likes of Steve Rubell, Calvin Klein, Halston, Liza Minnelli, Bianca Jagger, Grace Jones, and that guy with the blonde hair and glasses who's always taking pictures. Venues include Studio 54, Gynmnasium, the Met, The Roxy, Limelight, Plato's Retreat, Xenon, Trax, Cat Club. It's like asking for whipped cream and sprinkles on your tiramisu, though a very impressive compilation or work imortalizing the time. Ronald Edward Galella is an American photographer, known as a pioneer paparazzo. Dubbed "Paparazzo Extraordinaire" by Newsweek and "the Godfather of the U.S. paparazzi culture" by Time magazine and Vanity Fair, he is regarded by Harper's Bazaar as "the most controversial paparazzo of all time".
