Awesome Photographs of Marilyn Monroe by Philippe Halsman 1952

Philippe Halsman, (2 May 1906 Riga, Russian Empire - 25 June 1979 New York City), portrait photographer.

In 1951 Halsman was commissioned by NBC to photograph various popular comedians of the time including Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Groucho Marx, and Bob Hope. While photographing the comedians doing their acts, he captured many of the comedians in mid air, which went on to inspire many later jump pictures of celebrities including the Ford family, The Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Marilyn Monroe, María Félix and Richard Nixon.

Halsman had several photo sessions with Marilyn including Marilyn's first cover of Life Magazine.
