Deceased in 1979, the Latvian Philippe Halsman left his mark on an entire century with his protean photography. Over a period of forty years, from Paris to New York, he met the greatest artists and immortalised them on film. This unique retrospective offers people a chance to discover his work in three hundred of his greatest works.

In order to give people a better understanding of the full complexity of his art, the exhibition is divided into four sections. The first is devoted to his years in Paris, around 1930. Back then this close friend of André Gide worked for major magazines including Journal des Modes, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Voilà, Le Monde illustré, Vu… The second section is dedicated to his multiple portraits. The photographer behind Life has indeed met the biggest celebrities: Marilyn Monroe, Alfred Hitchcock, Albert Einstein, Dean Martin… The third section highlights his staging and passion for “jumpology”, these spontaneous portraits. Finally, the last focusses on his unique collaboration with Salvador Dalí.
