Jump Out of your Skin - And reveal yourself!

Starting in the early 1950s, portrait photographer Philippe Halsman took a series of "Jump" pictures of celebrities in mid-air including Audrey Hepburn (pictured above), Marilyn Monroe, Robert Oppenheimer, John Steinbeck, Aldous Huxley, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali, Brigitte Bardot, and Groucho Marx. He published Philippe Halsman's Jump Book in 1959, which contained a tongue-in-cheek discussion of jumpology and 178 photographs of celebrity jumpers. Halsman’s Jump Book has recently been republished by Damiani. 

Amazingly adorable, perfectly revealing and well worth a peak!
