Description: This massive retrospective volume profiles the work of Philippe Halsman, one of the world’s most revered photographers. Salvador Dali’s flamboyant moustache, Richard Nixon jumping in the West Wing, Grace Kelly’s amazing profile—these are just a few of the images that achieved iconic status and helped make photographer Philippe Halsman an icon in his own right. Comprising hundreds of photographs and insightful accompanying texts, this volume explores Halsman’s oeuvre in a variety of aspects. It examines his early career exhibiting works at the avant-garde La Pleiade Gallery in Paris; his experiments with portraiture, particularly the series of stunning images of Marilyn Monroe and his more than 100 covers for Life magazine; his pictures of the contemporary art scene that include famous dancers, movie stars, stage actors, and musicians and the birth of his "jumpology" concept; and his unique, 30-year collaboration with Salvador Dali, including a book devoted entirely to the artist’s moustache. Anyone interested in portraiture, celebrity, or performance will marvel at the breadth and magnificence of Halsman’s work, which is definitively presented in this beautiful volume.

Description: "Pour moi, la photographie peut être une chose à la fois profondément sérieuse et extraordinairement amusante. Essayer de capturer la vérité élusive avec mon appareil est souvent frustrant, alors que tenter de créer une image qui n'existe que dans mon imagination se révèle un jeu exaltant".
Sortie du livre à l'occasion de l’exposition prévue à la fin de janvier 2014 au Musée de l’Elysée à Lausanne, Suisse.
