Go Ahead and Jump: Philippe Halsman’s Iconic Photos

Although most photographers ask their subjects to sit, the famous 20th-century portraitist Philippe Halsman commanded his sitters to jump. After shooting commissioned portraits for the top magazines of his day — Life, Look, and the Saturday Evening Post — Halsman would take a picture for his personal portfolio, which he published as Philippe Halsman’s Jump Book in 1959.
