The man who made Marilyn fly: Philippe Halsman’s stunt shots – in pictures

http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2015/oct/23/philippe-halsman-astonish-me-in-pictures

 

Marilyn Monroe in mid-air, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis goofing off, the Duke of Windsor in his socks, and Salvador Dalí nose to nose with a rhino – Halsman’s freaky frames defied gravity and convention

The top image is a true classic. Not made with a modern SLR capturing 10 images per sec. A true master of the trade!

See for yourselves!

Happy or sad?

There are photographs for everyone. If you are happy or sad, or if you like to be. This is a selection from The Guardian showing “The weekend in pictures.”

They will make you sad, happy, interested, shocked, or anythin else that photography always brings out in us. They will tell us the state of the world. At large, or in small. Near or far.

Playtime!

I said I would show you some of my own toys that I have photographed. This is a small selection. I am so happy that my parents didn´t throw them away so that I could play with them again. Now infront of the camera as a grown up. Well, to the size that is…

Dinky Toys, Corgy Toys, I had them and I still have for the sheer joy of it. I have a big selection of cowboys and indians that I look through from time to time. Not so common in the toy stores today? Transformers, dinosaurers and Star War figures are more common I think. Sometimes I handpaint them to more realistic colors. Depending on what I should do with them.

32 33 P18 - 1Volvo P18, but not “The Saint” color. That was white. My brother has worked on the No 1 P18. That is the very first that came out of the factory. It has now found its way back to Sweden from The US..
