Philippe Halsman: Jump!

Philippe Halsman (1906-1979) was a Latvian-born American portrait photographer.

His photo of Salvador Dali (Dali Atomicus) gave him the idea of photographing celebrities in mid jump, which became his tradmark.

Halsman commented, "When you ask a person to jump, his attention is mostly directed toward the act of jumping and the mask falls so that the real person appears." The photographer developed a philosophy of jump photography, which he called jumpology. He published Philippe Halsman's Jump Book in 1959, which contained a tongue-in-cheek discussion of jumpology and 178 photographs of celebrity jumpers.
