Ormond Gigli - Girls in the Windows- 1960 - Chromogenic print on Dibond - 86.4 x 86.4 cm
"It was the summer of 1960, and one morning I glanced out of the window of my studio in Manhattan and noticed that a row of brownstones opposite were being prepared for demolition. Looking at the design of the empty windows, an idea struck me: put a woman wearing colourful clothes in each of the openings.
I sent over someone from my staff to talk to the demolition supervisor. He agreed to let us go ahead – provided we used his wife in the photograph. We could shoot the next day during their lunch hour, he said. After that, the building would be gone.
There were models, socialites, my wife (second floor, far right), the supervisor's wife (third floor, third from left), all wearing their best dresses [see footnote]. I moved them around to spread out the colours and told them to pose as if they were giving someone a kiss. As I was photographing, I noticed some of them were on the windowsills. As these were made of cement and sometimes break off, I shouted at them through a bullhorn to stay within the frames.
I have a big print of it up on my wall. I still smile whenever I look at it, even after all these years. Not bad."
The photographs are by Ormond Gigli, Steve McCurry, Irving Penn, Bert Stern, Chris Levine, David Drebin, Diane Arbus ...
