2.0 su 5 stelle Nice facsimile edition of an iconic lot of photos of ... 7 ottobre 2016
Di Robert Rechter - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Nice facsimile edition of an iconic lot of photos of great stars jumping. Real effort has been put into this hardback edition, for the bookjacket and binding. Except for the very sad fact its printed on dull matt paper and not gloss. Even if the original was done on matte, I would've updated this to gloss. The effect is the inside looks like a cheap paperback, with very bad reproduction of the photos, making them grainy with no detail, and no 'oomph'. The photos are great, and some standouts have been reproduced better elsewhere. But this is the source book, so you just want to see them presented better on glossy paper, with a much finer sharper dot screen reproduction. A disappointment at such a great opportunity lost.
5.0 su 5 stelle Quite possibly the most delightful photography book back in print 27 gennaio 2017
Di Vocalion - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I ordered this book years ago just prior to it going out of print and was disappointed to find that the order could not be fulfilled. Fast-forward to 2016 and the book is back in print and just as poignant and wonderful as I remembered. Halsman photographing his subjects as they jump reveals a wonderful peer into every one of their personalities. The photograph of Van Cliburn's refusal to jump is worth the price of admission all by itself. Very highly recommended, and sure to put a smile on anyone's face.

5.0 su 5 stelle This Book Will Make You Smile 6 aprile 2006
Di Foster Corbin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Some of us developed our love of photography from looking at the pictures in LIFE magazine. We probably didn't realize it at the time but the great Philippe Halsman influenced us more than any other photographer as he had more LIFE covers than any other artist. Many of his photographs are part of the American unconscious-- the beautifully cropped portrait of John Kennedy, Marily Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor et al. Mr. Halsman, while on photo assignments, came up with the most clever idea of asking his subjects to jump for him. This beautiful book containing photographs of 191 jumps is the result.

This obviously persuasive photographer got statesmen, politicians, artists, actors, writers, scientists, theologians, comedians-- apparently just about everyone he asked-- to jump although some invitees said "no." They included Van Cliburn, Ed Murrow, Dag Hammarskjold, Herbert Hoover and most certainly Eleanor Roosevelt. (Tallulah Bankhead kept one foot on the ground.) I hadn't seen this book in several years. The two photographs I remembered with those of Salvador Dali and Marilyn Monroe. Other favorite shots are of Kitty Carlisle and Moss Hart, Shirley Temple, Joanne Woodward, Marcia Davenport, Adlai Stevenson, Grace Kelly and Judge Learned Hand as they jump.

Mr. Halsman wrote a very thought-provoking introduction to this collection in which he gives his theories about "jumpology." He certainly writes with a great deal of insight as well as humor. Dame Edith Sitwell "could. . . barely walk. . . I did not ask her to jump because it was obvious that the only thing Dame Edith could do well was to sit well." Some of his statements ring true. I'm not ready to jump on some of the others. Mr. Halsman opines that usually we, to quote T. S. Eliot, put on a face to meet the faces," and hide our feelings under our facial masks. When we jump, however, our faces show our true selves. That makes perfectly good sense. Case in point: Richard Nixon still looks like a caricature of himself when he is jumping. The artists also has theories about why men jump with their arms pointed toward the ceiling-- one arm versus both arms-- the significance of crossing the arms, keeping the arms to one's side, the differences in what the same motions mean when applied to men and women, the significance of removing one's shoes, the position of the legs, etc. In short, a fascinating essay. (Of all the men who jumped for Mr. Halsman, the only male to remove his shoes, showing dapper, designer socks as we would expect, while keeping his double-breasted suit buttoned, was the Duke of Windsor. I wonder what all that means.)

If you like photography or amateur psychology or just want to smile after a hard day at work, you should relax with this book.

This is one of my all-time FAVORITE books to give as a gift. This will bring a smile to anyone's face who reads it and sees all the engaging and whimsical photos. It's also a great coffee table book. I recommend purchasing this new, if you can find it new (looks like it might be reprinted?). I recently purchased a "like new" one on Amazon, and it was slightly yellow... but, it was still worth giving.
