Philippe Halsman

This photograph is very well known and maybe cliche to choose but i've always loved it. In this photo, theres so much chaos going on and i get a sense of humor from it. He famously collaborated with Dali and did many crazy portraits of him. The title of this photograph is "Dali Atomicus" and its because the painting in the corner is one of dali's named " Leda Atomica." It took 28 times to get the photo right. None of this messed with in the darkroom, the cats and water was really thrown. This picture gives me an uplifting and comical feel to photography.
