"Philippe Halsman, astonish me! » at Jeu de Paume, Paris.
During forty years, Philippe Halsman led a distinguished career since his debut in Paris in the 1930s until the huge success of his New York studio between 1940 and 1970. The exhibition highlights all of his works through nearly 300 photographs.
Far from only being a celebrity photographer, Halsman has continued throughout his life to experiment and push the boundaries of his medium. Portraits, fashion, reporting, advertising, personal projects, private and institutional requests, he tried everything with this straight approach that characterizes him, perfect technical skills and attention to detail.
