Philippe Halsman was an American portrait photographer who photographed some of the most celebrated figures of the mid-20th century—from artists to movies stars to intellectuals to politicians. His dynamic and surreal photography challenged the rules of the day by going against the soft focus and static style of the time and giving sharp focus to his subjects.
