Philippe Halsman retrospective at CaixaForum

The exhibition includes 300 images by one of the most important photographers of the 20th century

101 covers for LIFE, collaborations with Salvador Dalí, pictures of celebrities jumping (a performance that came to be known as jumpology)… These are just some of the accomplishments that contributed to the fame of Philippe Halsman, who was born in Riga in 1906 and died in New York in 1979. Now, the CaixaForum Centre Social i Cultural is recalling his figure with a retrospective exhibition that will bring together 300 of his images, including the first public exhibition of photos from his early days in Paris. The title of the exhibition is Pilhippe Halsman. Surprise me! and it can be seen until 6 November.

This extensive retrospective allows visitors to observe not only the quality of Halsman's photographs, but also their originality and variety. The exhibition is divided into four sections, portraits, fashion, staging and publications, and there is no lack of images from LIFE magazine covers and celebrities immortalized by Halsman while jumping. While the exhibition is on, guided tours, workshops, talks and conferences will be held on this key figure in 20th century photography.
