Iconic Photo 1971: Jackie Kennedy Onassis

This unposed street photography picture was taken by paparazzi pioneer, Ron Galella, who stalked Jackie.  In this picture, she seems to be smiling – but all she has heard is a taxi toot its horn, she can’t see if she is being hailed by friend or foe.

This photo raised the stakes in the questions of whether a celebrity has the right to private moments, to not be photographed.
