This unique and authoritative book has long been out of print, and so Abrams takes great pleasure in reissuing it, adding previously unpublished jumps, in recognition of this revolutionary breakthrough that united briefly the science of psychology and the art of photography.

About the author (1986)

Philippe Halsman's memorable photographs of the leading statesmen, scientists, entertainers and artists of our time continue to appear in magazines and books. In 1944, four years after arriving in the Unites States from France, his colleagues elected him first president of the American Society of Magazine Photographers. In 1958 he was named one of the world's ten best photographers in an international poll.
His other publications include "The Frenchman," "Piccoli" (a fairy tale), "Philippe Halsman's Jump Book," "Halsman on the Creation of Photographic Ideas," and "Sight and Insight," as well as "Portraits" and "Halsman at Work," which were published by his family after his death in 1979. His work is represented in the permanent collections of numerous museums in the United States and abroad.
