Halsman, who had 101 Life covers to his credit when he died in 1979, felt a portrait that did not show psychological insight was "an empty likeness" of its subject. Rolleiflex in hand and tongue in cheek, he invented his own Rorschach test--"jumpology"--and talked his subjects into becoming airborne in the interest of science. Richard Nixon, Aldous Huxley, Marilyn Monroe, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor are among the celebrities he launches into orbit.Review:
Before you Instagrammed your leap off that boat dock, before you watched that YouTube video instructing you exactly how to attractively achieve said fleeting, gravity-defying moment, before Arthur Elgort captured a generation of models and actors exuberantly midair in what would become a classic fashion pose, there was Philippe Halsman, self-described “jumpologist.” (Rebecca Bengal vogue.com)
