Gleb Derujinsky (1925-2011) was born in New York City to Russian-American parents. His father, Gleb Derujinsky Sr., was a renowned sculptor whose work is in museums across the country and his mother was a concert pianist. The family was also related to famed Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. Derujinsky Jr. was taking, developing and printing his own photos by age 6. By his teens, he was invited to join the prestigious New York Camera Club, where he learned from and worked with some of the most influential photographers of the time, including Alfred Steiglitz and Edward Steichen. His work appeared in Look, Life, Esquire, Glamour, Town and Country and The New York Times Magazine. Derujinsky's most iconic photos were part of his 17-year career with Harper's Bazaar. For the January 1958 Harper’s Bazaar, Derujinsky and his wife, model Ruth Neumann Derujinsky, created a series of photographs called “Round-the-World Fashion: HB’s Flying Odyssey” on a 25-day trip around the world in Boeing's new 707. In the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, Derujinsky moved into cinematography and film direction, working primarily on television commercials and winning awards from the New York Art Directors and the Cannes and Venice International Advertising Film Festivals. Derujinsky is considered a modern Renaissance man: in addition to his career as a photographer, he raced cars on a team sponsored by Ferrari America, was one of the top glider pilots in the U.S., designed and built some of the first carbon-fiber bicycles in the world, which were used by the U.S. Olympic Cycling Team, was an accomplished pianist, opened a jewelry store, and was a ski instructor for several decades.
