Ormond Gigli (1925-2019) was a celebrated American photojournalist with a career that spanned over forty years, working for the world’s leading magazines including Time, Life, Paris Match, Colliers and other international publications.
Becoming known in the 1950s for photographs of theatre, film, and dance, Gigli stood out in the field with his mastery of photo direction from photo shoots of epic proportions to accomplishing intimate revealing portraits. His ability to put his subjects at ease during complicated, sometimes uncomfortable situations, was characteristic of his style as much as was the technical prowess of his camerawork.
He photographed countless leading stars and celebrities throughout his career, including Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida, Anita Ekberg, Marcel Duchamp, Willem de Kooning, John F. Kennedy, Halston, Marlene Dietrich, Leslie Caron, Judy Garland, Liza Minelli, Barbra Streisand, Laurence Olivier, Alan Bates, Richard Burton, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, and many more.
