    May I jump once ? I don't think that I have expressed myself completely—Romain GaryCovering the gamut of movie stars singers authors diplomats painters composers scientists and so on Halsman collected these images and his thoughts surrounding the defining principles behind his jumpology theories and tucked them sweetly into this wonderful bookI have long been fascinated with Halsman's work and specifically his Jump series — which caught my eye randomly and I think from a photograph of Audrey Hepburn I had happened upon His idea behind it from an impulsive decision developed into an entire theory for him Not only did his own inhibitions disappear to be replaced with faith but he realized that deep down people wanted to jump and considered jumping fun Halsman felt that jumping had therapeutic value And noticed that if his sitters were self conscious and tense once he asked them to jump the mask fell Those same subjects became less inhibited and relaxed — in other words ultimately photogenic Often the photograph of a jump does not transmit its symbolic message immediately A closer scrutiny will show however that every element in the jumper's body — his arms his legs the position of the body the expression of his face — reveals definite character traits Yes he was met with the refusals — those not wishing to jump for camera or at all perhaps — but he estimates only one or two percent overall But an overwhelming number of his subjects did thankfullySome authors included Mike Wallace Walter Kerr Max Lerner Abe Burrows Bennett Cerf John Steinbeck Aldous Huxley Ben Hecht Marcia Davenport Randall Jarrell François Mauriac and Shepherd Mead

    a novel idea you show a lot of your personality when you jump the ego is caught off guard and the child leaps out interesting to see how different celebrities relax and let themselves fly this would be a good idea to revive with current stars

  3. nikki karam nikki karam says:

    This is a photography book so you 'read' it in the sense that you read photographs and extract some objective andor subjective meaning from them That being said this is one of the happiest and most romantic books I've ever read The story beautifully sweeps across the 20th mid century years through the eyes of one man who had such warmth and skill as to render the world's most famous people celebrities politicians royalty scientists defenseless against his singular unusual reuest It's clear how much these people really enjoyed being asked to do something out of the ordinary and for a moment forget about the stifling ordinariness of fame Highly recommended

  4. Tracy D Tracy D says:

    I loved this Uniue Pure whimsy Interesting As a photographer and studier of human behavior I wanted to go around asking people to jump Fantastic look into people and their motivations and personalities

  5. Nathan Nathan says:

    I looked through the 1959 version of this book and assume it is the same as the 2015 Halsman's project of collecting the jumps of as many people that he could while on assignment in the 1950's for publications like TIME and others is a fun record At the start of the book he describes the jumpology of the pictures As a tounge in cheek idea it is enjoyable to read into each pose a symbolism of the inner psychology of the jumper The limb positions symmetry and expression all seem to give a view of that person as less staged a peering behind the façade as it were Yet Dalí's photo goes against Halsman's original intent of the unforced and pure expression of the subject in air Unlike the other jumpers the Dalí picture reuired 28 attempts to get the final shot poor flying cats

  6. Allison Renner Allison Renner says:

    Halsman was a noted portrait photographer who asked his subjects to jump for him before he finished a session The result is a book of wonderful images featuring various authors celebrities and political figures in midair There are a few pages of text outlining jumpology the way Halsman analyzed his subjects' arm and leg positions to learn about their personalities The book is mostly a picture book but the text is worth reading

  7. Ashley Ashley says:

    I picked this up after hearing about seeinghearing about Halsman's photo of Salvador Dali Dali Atomicus It was neat to see all the big names of the age The Fords Nixon Grace Kelly Audrey Hepburn president of US Steel president of US Airlines just to name a few jumping Halsman's introduction is uirky and tongue in cheek much like I imagine he was like

  8. Summer Summer says:

    i love this book so much

  9. Thea Thea says:

    Incredibly silly and oh so much fun I pick this up when I want a laugh

  10. Shayne Shayne says:

    Not really a book you read so much as look at but a fun one anyway One of the 50s' greatest portraitists ugly word that captures his famous at the time anyway subjects mid air Fun
