#36b Jumping for Joy

August 18, 2010

After Mark's hilarious "jump" post yesterday, I couldn't help but think about the book "Jump" by Philippe Halsman. Do you know it? It's been a favorite of‚ mine for years, and has been experiencing a much-deserved comeback recently.

Here's the book.

Here's an article about it in The New York Times.

Here's the link about the "Jump" photography exhibit in New York, still up for another few days.

So what do you think, should we stage our own "jumpology" exhibit right here? Let's see how many of you are keen to take a photo of yourself jumping (for joy). A fun experiment, and pretty simple, right? Snap the photo on your phone or fancy camera or whatever... do it today and I'll something put together for us by Friday. Share it here.
