Photographs of film celebrities try to reveal more than their movies do. Whether looking surprised or carefully posed, celebrities have the visual control of themselves and how they look down to a science. This large, aggressive book of sometimes astonishing, sometimes quiet photographs shows the generous archive of black-and-white celebrity shots left to us by Philippe Halsman (1906?79). Halsman brought originality, respect, and confidence to his work. What's missing here is Halsman himself getting his self-conscious subjects to leap or slouch or sneer or bask in their own glory; whether or not we admire the work of this incredibly gifted photographer, we can't help but appreciate his ability to reveal the people he shot. Jane Halsman Bello, the photographer's daughter, and her husband have arranged the book alphabetically by celebrity surname. Big, beautiful, and recommended for general collections.?David Bryant, New Canaan P.L., CT

Descrizione libro Bulfinch Press July 1999, 1999. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. During a career that spanned more than forty years, nearly every leading personality in the arts and many major world figures sat for Philippe Halsman's camera. In this major retrospective, published to coincide with a traveling exhibition, the best of Halsman's brilliant work is included. Here are his famous portraits, many of which have become the definitive image of the subject. Here too are testaments to his fascination with surrealism, such as his famous 'Dali Atomicus', and other outrageous visual puns. His 'jumpology' photos, which capture famous people from Richard Nixon to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor jumping for his camera, offer a glimpse into the whimsical and fantastical side of this artist. From the most serious, deeply penetrating portrait of Albert Einstein to the fanciful image of Marilyn Monroe in midair, Philippe Halsman: A Retrospective is a look at a true master of photography. With an insightful introduction by Mary Panzer, superb duotone printing, and an inventive design, this is a truly definitive collection of Halsman's work. Sealed Copy.
