Some 80 new and vintage photographs represent the full range of Halsman's (1906-1979) portraiture. The exhibition concentrates on portraits he took for Life, Look, and Saturday Evening Post from the 1930s through the 1970s. Also on view are the "jumping photos," in which Halsman asked subjects to jump for the camera.
