Jeffrey Conley is a fine art landscape photographer who specializes in creating traditional black and white prints. His meticulously crafted prints, made utilizing traditional darkroom processes, are made in small limited editions. His work has been widely exhibited and collected by private collectors and museums worldwide. Two monographs of his work, WINTER, 2011, and REVERENCE, 2018, have been published by Nazraeli Press. Conley‘s photographs strive for a balanced simplicity that evoke his sense of wonder and reverence for the natural world. Scale and palette vary, from small, intimate and subtle, to large, grand and dramatic. In all he seeks to capture a meditative spirit that uniquely defines his approach to photographing the landscape. He strives to create luminous hand-coated platinum & palladium prints that he feels possess a distinctive richness unique to traditional photographic processes.

Ormond Gigli was born in New York City in 1925. He became famous early on during the 1950s for his photographs of theatre, celebrities, dance, exotic persons, and places. His work appeared prominently on covers & editorial pages of LIFE, TIME, Paris Match, Saturday Evening Post, Colliers, and other major international publications. Gigli worked more like a film director than a photojournalist. His ability to earn his subjects' trust in his vision—often during complicated, uncomfortable, and even dangerous setups—was as important to the photos as his technical finesse with the camera. During the 1970s and 1980s, Gigli turned to advertising photography, while continuing his editorial work. His assignments took him around the world many times.—Courtesy of Fine Art Auctions Miami.
