The irony of all ironies

"NO PHOTOGRAPHY" in the PHOTOGRAPHY MUSEUM, Amsterdam.

 

....and yes, I eventually got sent to the naughty boys' corner.

 

I was particularly interested in seeing the exhibition about Ron Galella's life and work. He may not have invented the world of the paparazzi but he certainly took it to a whole new level, especially in the 1960's and 70's. Featured were his photos of stars such as Mick Jagger, Jackie Onassis, Brigitte Bardot, Marlon Brando, Andy Warhol, Sean Penn, Elizabeth Taylor and Frank Sinatra. They originally appeared in magazines such as Time, Rolling Stone and Vogue. The exhibition also told the story of his constant battles (physically and legally) with some of the stars.
