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

    Girls In The Windows "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. We had to work quickly to secure City permissions, arrange for models which included celebrities, the demolition supervisior's wife (third floor, third from left), my own wife (second floor, far right), and also secure the Rolls Royce to be parked on the sidewalk. Careful planning was a necessity as the photography had to be accomplished during the workers' lunch time! The day before the buildings were razed, the 43 women appeared in their finest attire, went into the buildings, climbed the old stairs, and took their places in the windows. I was set up on my fire escape across the streeet, directing the scene, with bullhorn in hand. Of course I was concerned for the Models' safety, as some were daring enough to pose out on the crumbling sills. The photography came off as planned. What had seemed to some as too dangerous or difficult to accomplish, became my fantasy fulfilled, and my most memorable self - assigned photograph. It has been an international award winner ever since. Most professional photographers dream of having one signature picture they are known for. "Girls in The Windows" is mine." - Ormond Gigli

    I think this can be art installation :D Girls in the Window by Ormond Gigli, 1960. The day before this brownstone on East 58th was razed, Gigli posed 43 women in formal dress in the windows, some daring to step out onto the crumbling sills while Gigli directed with a bullhorn

"We can change our perspective and walk to a clearer spot at any time. How to we see the Truth? We cannot. I cannot. You cannot. We cannot see it where we choose to stand. We cannot see it from where we are choosing to stand with our limited 'imitation version' of the mind." --Unasleep www.youtube.com/...

Some of these images intricately make me feel that I know these places. I see them like I've lived them...a stirring that is so real. A longing a sadness a connection that pulls fully and really. B
