Philippe Halsman's Jumpology


Audrey Hepburn

Anthony Perkins

I love these. All images found here. Halsman said, "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."

My favorites:

Eva Marie Saint

And this is Hattie Jaques, a British comedienne from the 60s I've only heard of this evening, after watching a BBC4 drama about her called Hattie, starring two of my absolute favorites, Aidan Turner and Ruth Jones. It was heartbreaking and troubling, but very good. It's on youtube if it interests you!

And if you're wondering why I'm blogging at 3 in the morning, the answer is the water in my building was somehow turned off without any knowledge to its inhabitants. I called our property manager and he said they had a plumber coming out, but no water has run since 8pm, and I consequently have a case of anxious insomnia. But I found these cool pictures!
