Stunning, emotive Jumpology photography by Philippe Halsman.
Pure happiness and emotion captured in one shot - un-staged, and priceless!!
Halsman claimed the jumps revealed character that was otherwise hidden. "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 photographed many comedians and celebrities in the 1950's and here are some of the best.
