Influential Photo – Alex Feng

Dali Atomicus

Philippe Halsman


This photograph was able to capture everything in what it could be considered a sharp focus during that time. While it may seem like time has been frozen in the picture, in reality, all of the subjects were in motion which often comes out a bit blurry.  However, this photograph was only managed to be taken only after 26 times and with a couple of assistants, too. As a result of the approach taken to get that moment down onto a photograph, subjects were able to be captured in a sharp focus even while moving and that there was a promotion of involvement between between photographer and subject.
