Making Surreal Photography before Photoshop
Phillipe Halsman takes a photo of Salvador Dali with cats in New York, in 1948.
The paintings and furniture are suspended from the ceiling, the photographer's wife holds the chair. The cats are thrown in the air together with the buckets of water. Dali jumps. Halsman takes the picture.
(the cats were thrown into the air 28 times; the shooting lasted 6 hours)
