He opened a portrait studio in Montparnasse in 1934, where he photographed Andre Gide, Marc Chagall, Andre Malraux, Le Corbusier, and other writers and artists, using an innovative twin-lens reflex camera that he had designed himself. His assignments brought him face-to-face with many of the century’s leading personalities. In 1945 he was elected the first president of the American Society of Magazine Photographers, where he led the fight for photographers’ creative and professional rights. His work soon won international recognition, and in 1951 he was invited by the founders of Magnum Photos to join the organization as a “contributing member, ” so that they could syndicate his work outside the United States. This arrangement still stands. Halsman began a thirty-seven-year collaboration with Salvador Dali­ in 1941 which resulted in a stream of unusual “photographs of ideas, ” including Dali­ Atomicus and the Dali’s Mustache series. In the early 1950s, Halsman began to ask his subjects to jump for his camera at the conclusion of each sitting. These uniquely witty and energetic images have become an important part of his photographic legacy. Philippe Halsman died in New York City on 25 June 1979. The item “MAKE AN OFFER!
