DEBORAH TURBEVILLE was born in Massachusetts and raised in New England. When she was twenty years old she moved to New York City to work with designer Claire McCardell. Having a fond interest in designer clothing Deborah became a fashion editor. It was not long after that she realized that her heart was in photography. She has been taking photos ever since. Turbeville divides her time between New York and Mexico and always spends a great deal of time in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Turbeville’s exhibition Silent Film at Ralph Pucci's 15,000-square-foot penthouse opened last night with a party. Half the photographs are set in Versailles, France, including the behind-the-scenes back rooms and storage spaces off-limits to the public. They’re taken from her “Unseen Versailles” series edited by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who helped Turbeville gain access to the royal palace. Other photographs were shot in Saint Petersburg, Russia and Venice.
