Disco Years presents a fantastic collection of photographs from America's premier nightlife photographer, Ron Galella.

Disco Years features 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 others.

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.
