Ormond Gigli, Girls in the Windows
Girls in the Windows

Born in New York City in 1925, Ormond Gigli gained recognition in the 1950s for his photographs of actors, celebrities, dancers, and exotic people and places. His work appeared prominently on covers and editorial pages of LIFE, TIME, Paris Match, the Saturday Evening Post, Colliers, and other major international publications. He was welcomed backstage on Broadway as readily as he was in the private lives of celebrities. Some of Gigli’s favorite photographs were self-assigned, international award-winners, such as “Girls in the Windows” photographed in 1960.
