© Philippe Halsman, ca. 1949, 'The Versatile Jean Cocteau' “The greatest masterpiece in literature is only a dictionary out of order.” (Jean Cocteau) Before the age of Photoshop, there was Philippe Halsman. His dynamic and imaginative photography broke the rules of the day by going against the soft focus style of the time and giving sharp focus to his subjects. He used both stage and darkroom techniques to produce gravity defying objects and invented new ways of interacting with subjects.

Philippe Halsman Quote: "Most people stiffen with self-consciousness when they pose for a photograph. Lighting and fine camera equipment are useless if the photographer cannot make them drop the mask, at least for a moment, so he can capture on his film their real, undistorted personality and character. "
