Ormond Gigli is best known for his photojournalistic work and the award-winning photo Girls in the Windows (1960). Born in New York, NY, in 1925, Gigli graduated from the School of Modern Photography in 1942, then served in the Navy during World War II.
After the war, the artist began photographing important figures in sports, theater, dance, and society for publications such as Time, Life, and the Saturday Evening Post. His editorial work lent itself to his personal art photography, and in the 1970s and 1980s, Gigli turned his eye towards advertising work.
