Philippe Halsman (born Filips Halsmans) was a famed Latvian photographer who took pictures for magazines like Vogue and Life.

In 1931 he came to France with the help from Nobel Prize receiver Albert Einstein after having served 3 years in Austrian prison for killing his father on a hiking trip.
When World War II broke out, he escaped Hitler’s “Endlösung” by going to the United States.

In 2007 Patrick Swayze starred in the movie “Jump”, loosely based on Halsman’s story.
