'The Joys of Jumpology'


"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."

So said photographer Phillipe Halsman about why he liked to photograph people in the act of jumping.


"A wonderful exhibition of nearly 50 jumps that Halsman captured on film from the late 1940s through the '50s... can be seen at the Laurence Miller Gallery at 20 West 57th Street in Manhattan, through Friday," wrote Roberta Smith in a laudatory review in this past Monday's New York Times.


From the top: the photographer with Marilyn Monroe; Aldous Huxley; Audrey Hepburn.

Only one person would not jump. Pianist Van Cliburn. What a dick.
