Gina Lollobrigida jumping, c1950 by Philippe Halsman captures the zeitgeist of mid-century Hollywood. This is a 10" x 8" vintage gelatin silver photograph -- a black and white photograph with the photographer's copyright stamp and annotations on verso (back of photo). It is from the photographer's famous series of jump photographs.

Jump Series Backstory:

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. "Starting in the early 1950s I asked every famous or important person I photographed to jump for me. I was motivated by a genuine curiosity. After all, life has taught us to control and disguise our facial expressions, but it has not taught us to control our jumps. I wanted to see famous people reveal in a jump their ambition or their lack of it, their self-importance or their insecurity, and many other traits." –P.H.

Artist’s Bio:

Philippe Halsman (1906-1979) is considered one of the best editorial photo-portraitists 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 from the period. He enjoyed a 37-year collaboration with Salvador Dalí, which resulted in a series of surrealist photographs.
