this would be my idea of photography. no tricks, no fiction, but just a photographer with:
– a delicious brain and ideas
– some tasty huge eyes and talent
– lot of sparkling madness and boldness
ps: in this pic was was not used visual manipulation. i mean, in 1948 you would have had some major difficulties in using photoshop, mostly cause it didn’t exist at that time. 😀 philippe halsman reported that it took 28 attempts to get this pic and be satisfied with the result.
photographer: p.halsman, model: salvador dali, title: dali atomicus, year: 1948, result: awesome.
