Jump! by Philippe Halsman

Philippe Halsman was most famous for his iconic photos of Salvador Dali and Albert Einstein. For a period in the 1950’s, Halsman ended his portrait shoots by asking his famous subjects to jump.

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.

He collected all his jump photos into the recently re-released Philippe Halsman’s Jump Book.
