Philippe Halsman, Latvian-born photographer created an immense portfolio of jumping celebrities and public figures.
  1. Philippe worked for Life, shooting 101 covers in his time.
    At the end of shoots he would ask his subject to jump for a photo. Halsman called this photographic technique “Jumpology,” stating that "When you ask a person to jump, his attention is mostly directed toward the act of jumping and the mask falls so that the real person appears."
