Philippe Halsman's Jump Book

In the 1950s, when portrait photographer Philippe Halsman said "jump," Brigitte Bardot (pictured here) jumped. So did Salvador Dali, Grace Kelly, Clare Boothe Luce, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, Walter Gropius and many others. These lighthearted and revealing photographs were collected in the 1956 classic, Philippe Halsman's Jump Book, now available in a great new hardback facsimile edition from Damiani. Of Bardot, Marilyn Monroe and Gina Lollobrigida, who were catalogued under the heading of "The Love Goddesses," Halsman wrote, "The childlike playfulness of their jumps shows that the image the public has of them is nothing but the reflection of the public's own desires."
