Girls in the Windows: And Other Stories
Ormond Gigli had an illustrious career as a photojournalist over the course of some 40 years and took many magnificent photographs—but one photograph has eclipsed all the others. It was a photograph he conceived for himself, without an editorial assignment. It is the incomparable "Girls in the Windows" of 1960.
Girls in the Windows: And Other Stories is the first book to survey the work of Ormond Gigli and escorts the viewer behind the façade of that incredible photograph—to understand its genesis and to celebrate its remarkable achievement—in addition to creating a portal into the rest of Gigli's brilliant career. This beautifully illustrated volume showcases Gigli's celebrity and fashion photographs, and includes his innovative work in the worlds of theater, film, and dance, as well as his little-known travel photography and photojournalism.
