Text of Jumping Celebrities

PowerPoint Show by Andrew Turn on Speakers

Philippe Halsman, with an unsurpassed 101 LIFE magazine covers to his credit, had the bold and unconventional idea back in the 1950s to ask the famous and prominent people he was commissioned to photograph for the likes of LIFE, LOOK and the Saturday Evening Post, once the formal sessions were over, to jump!

The results were amazing, as each subject interpreted this bizarre request in their own unique way, often defying their typical public image.
