Official app of the exhibition “Philippe Halsman. Astonish Me!”, presented at the Jeu de Paume from 20 October 2015 to 24 January 2016.
American photographer Philippe Halsman (1906–1979), famous for his portraits of celebrities, his 101 LIFE magazine covers and his long collaboration with Salvador Dalí, is remarkable for the very breadth of his work: portraits, fashion, reportage, advertising… Beginning in Paris in the 1930s and continuing in New York from the 1940s onward, he carved out a career that was to be a model for others and that lasted for more than 40 years. The exhibition showcases the photographer’s entire career for the first time.
Discover the life and career of the photographer through an examination of twenty-six iconic works and an illustrated biography. Videos, including a video portrait of the artist by the exhibition curators, and a personal view of a selection of works by an art specialist, will deepen your understanding of the exhibition.
