A photographer I should have discovered a long time ago…

Philippe Halsman!

I’m a fan of pictures with jumps. I feel like the only ones I’ve really been in touch with are my own and Lois Greenfield’s.

But man, this one is probably the most amazing one ever!
It’s called “dali-atomicus”, taken in 1948.

And according to neatorama.com, “it took six hours, 28 jumps, and a roomful of assistants throwing angry cats and buckets of water into the air to get the perfect exposure.”

Poor cats.
