FOTO | Fotografen Philippe Halsman fick 1955 Richard Nixon att hoppa framför kameran. Vicepresidenten var bara en bland många som lockats till detta.

Richard Nixon av Philippe Halsman

Till sist publicerades ”hoppbilderna” 1956 i boken Philippe Halsman’s Jump Book.

Mary Panzer, curator vid Smithsonian Institution, skrev så här om bilderna:

The ”jump” pictures had surprising charm, and over the next six years, Halsman asked many clients to jump for him. Van Cliburn, Edward R. Murrow, and Herbert Hoover declined Halsman’s invitation, but most people realized they had nothing to lose. (Some gained considerably, like the suddenly buoyant and likable Vice President Richard Nixon, who jumped for Halsman in the White House.) Halsman claimed the jumps revealed character that was otherwise hidden. ”When you ask a person to jump, his attention is mostly directed toward the act of jumping and the mask falls so that the real person appears.”

Halsman also pursued this project to discover something about himself. ”I assure you that often, before approaching the person, my heart would beat, and I would have to fight down all my inhibitions in order to address this request to my subject. At every time when the subject agreed to jump, it was for me like a kind of victory.” How did Halsman persuade so many to abandon their composure for his camera? Somehow, he managed to convince each one that the risk was all his own.
