Presenting: “One Jump”. A series of photos by Magnum photographer Alex Majoli from the 2007 Cannes Festival, commissioned to celebrate the festival’s 60th anniversary. Majoli dubs the staging of the black and white photographs — featuring actors, actresses and other celebrities leaping against an all-white backdrop — a tribute to Philip Halsman, a “cult photographer” from the 1960s known for his “Jumpology” series, which aimed to strip celebrities of their artifice.
And next Wednesday post… will be introducing the originals: Philip Halsman’s Jumpology.
