The MNBAQ in Quebec City is running Philippe Halsman: Astonish Me! from June 15th, to September 4th, 2017. It seems just the right sort of thing for a nice summer day. Halsman is the photographer who invented “jumpology” the art of taking portraits of people who are jumping into the air. “When you ask a person to jump, his attention is mostly directed to the act of jumping and the mask falls so the real person appears,” said Halsman. He also took the photograph that shows Alfred Hitchcock with a cigar dangling from his mouth and a bird perched on the end of the cigar. Halsman collaborated with Salvador Dali for more than 30 years and produced 101 Life Magazine covers.
