As part of the X Moscow International Biennale ‘Fashion and Style in Photography’ the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center present the first solo exhibition in Russia of photographer Philippe Halsman, Jump.

“I was motivated by a genuine curiosity. After all, life has taught us to control and disguise our facial expressions, but it has not taught us to control our jumps. I wanted to see famous people reveal in a jump their ambition or their lack of it, their self-importance or their insecurity, and many other traits.” Philippe Halsman
