Available through 99Prints in New York City, an art marketplace for the modern collector, offering original photography, art, and works on paper, online. Artist's Bio: Philippe Halsman (1906-1979) is considered one of the best editorial photo-portraitist of the 20th Century. Halsman’s photographs of politicians, celebrities, and intellectuals were featured widely in magazines like LIFE and Vogue. He photographed everyone, including luminaries Marc Chagall, Le Corbusier, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Albert Einstein, and many other celebrities. He enjoyed a 37-year collaboration with Salvador Dalí, which resulted in a series of surrealist photographs. In the 1950s, Halsman began asking his sitters to jump in front of the camera to relax people. The Jump Series is among his best known work.
