working that is.
I stumbled upon this little gem months ago at Half Price Books and didn’t look at it until yesterday when I was going through some of my collection. It’s a delightful little piece covering the work of Philippe Halsman and his wife who acted as his assistant during the course of his career. This little volume shows some of his pieces he took of famous people in the mid-20th century, including Einstein and Churchill, and includes behind the scenes photos and little notes from him and his wife about the event. I should have known his name; he made the photos with Dali of the cats and water and chair in the air, as well as the skull formed by nude female models.
