I had known of Philippe Halsman as a photographer but knew nothing of his personal life until I read The Jump Artist a novel based on research into his life Still the book does not claim to be a biography and the author has fleshed out the basic facts with his interpretation of Halsman s thoughts and deeds Halsman was accused of murdering his father while they were hiking together in the Tyrolean Alps and spent time in prison He was Jewish and lived in a very dangerous time and place during the rise of Hitler the victim of anti Semitism uite obvious in his trials Philippe had a conflicted relationship with his father as many young men do After the murder of his father he became depressed and self destructive and he pushed away all the people who loved him The book is well written with some beautiful language There are interesting uotes at the beginning of each chapter and foreign language phrases that are not always translated For me some of the sentences didn t make sense until I read further A bit of the writing was almost stream of consciousness especially that involving sea life As to how he became a photographer I appreciated the uote at the gallery they asked me how I became a photographer and I said it happened as a girl sometimes becomes a prostitute doing it first for herself then for friends and finally for money The book was not dumbed down to make it a happy light read Even though this is a short novel it is a serious book There is a retrospective of Halsman including some of his fabulous portraits at
