Philippe Halsman: Dali Atomicus, 1948 Before modern, computerized techniques in image manipulation, Philippe Halsman shot this photograph of Salvador Dali suspended in mid-air. While today this image could easily be replicated in Photoshop, it wasn’t.
The owl has a lot of great texture. It is made with simple geometric shapes. The owl is still powerful in black and white. It's an interesting crop of the owl. I wish I could see more of the owl like his wings.
