Dali Atomicus

In 1948, Magnum’s Philippe Halsman made this photograph  with friend/collaborator Salvador Dali
Years later he wrote about the shoot: “Six hours and twenty-eight throws later, the result satisfied my striving for perfection…My assistants and I were wet, dirty, and near complete exhaustion—only the cats still looked like new.”
