ORMOND GIGLI: GIRLS IN THE WINDOWS AND OTHER STORIES. PowerHouse Books, Brooklyn, 2013. Distributed by Random House, Inc., New York. 252 pp. with 193 ills. (150 col.). 34 x 29 cm. LC 2013-944045 ISBN 9781576876602 In English.
Large format. Publisher's description: 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 looks behind the facade of that extraordinary photograph to understand its genesis and to celebrate its beauty and pathos as well as to open the window onto the rest of Gigli's brilliant career. The book focuses primarily on Gigli's celebrity and fashion photographs and on his work in the theater, film, and dance worlds, but it also offers examples of his travel photography and straight photojournalism.
