An obvious example is the festival's centerpiece: Ron Gallela: Paparazzo Extraordinaire! at Madrid's Circulo de Bellas Artes, with a select group of prints at the nearby Loewe luxury store. Galella's celebrity snaps, mostly from the 1960s and '70s, reflect their creator's visual skill, but they're basically stolen glances of elite personalities. Yet Galella's work and his own outsize personality dominated PHE's opening week, with the 80-year-old photographer relishing his notoriety. "I'm an actor too," he noted at one point while spinning anecdotes about favorite images. His unabashed egotism was laced with good humor. "My paparazzi germs got on his fist," he said of the infamous punch-out he received from Marlon Brando, which sent the actor to the hospital for stitches on his hand. Galella's accomplishments are echoed in a documentary film at Circulo de Bellas Arts, in which admirers tout his bravery, tenacity and, yes, artistry.
