Girls in the Windows by Ormond Gigli, New York, 1960

A well known picture took by Ormond Gigli in 1960. Long time no see. Love it !

In 1960, while a construction crew dismantled a row of brownstones right across from my own brownstone studio on East 58th Street, I was inspired to, somehow immortalize those buildings. I had the vision of 43 women in formal dress adorning the windows of the skeletal facade. […] Most professional photographers dream of having one signature picture they are known for. “Girls in the Windows” is mine.
