Remembering Marilyn Monroe on her birthday 🎂
📷 Ed Feingersh, 1955
“Her fame increases, & as it does so we see how far she depended on, and excelled in, photographs - not movies. She is funnier in stills, sexier, more mysterious & protected against being. ”
- David Thomson

Remembering Philippe Halsman on his birthday 🎂
📷 Yale Joel
"Every face I see seems to hide and sometimes, fleetingly, to reveal the mystery of another human being... Capturing this revelation became the goal and passion of my life."
I never knew about this film: Joshua Sinclair's Jump, released in 2007. Ben Silverstone plays a young Philippe Halsman, framed for his father's murder in 1928 Austria. Based on a true story. After a pardon Halsman made his way to Paris in 1930.
Cute title!

Yvonne Halsman worked alongside Philippe for much of his career, often documenting his methods with photographs of her own. Keep that in mind during this thread, which will likely be long! 🧵📷

Remembering Tony Randall on his birthday 🎂

Remembering Grace Kelly on her birthday 🎂
📷 Philippe Halsman, 1955
"When you looked at her picture, you were not looking at her. You were looking at the illusion of her. The camera did more than love her. It was insane about her."

Start with #desire.

One has to begin with desiring something that cannot be achieved by desiring. But if you are aware of this fact - if you are aware of the fact that you are desiring something that cannot be desired - it helps. At any moment, you can take the #jump.
With the #mind we cannot understand anything which is effortless. Mind means effort. The faculty of the mind is to do something; it is an instrument for doing. The very faculty of mind is to #achieve something, to gain some desire.
You cannot begin with no #desiring. The mind will make this non-desiring also the desired object.

The mind will create new desire and say, “Okay, I will try not to desire.” It will say, “Really, it looks fascinating. I will try to do something so that this no desiring happens.”

A few days ago I came across a news story of a young lady called Misozi been appointed as MD of @ilovezoona. A few Google search’s later, I was even more intrigued by her story and decided I had to meet her & get to know a bit more about her.
Misozi’s father passed away when she was 8, so her mom was breadwinner. Unfortunately her mothers’ eyes gave up and she had to stop her tailoring business. Her older brother had to take on the responsibility of putting himself and 4 siblings through school.
After passing High School, she got a place at Evelyn Hone College. Unfortunately after one semester, her brother informed her that he couldn’t continue with school fees and she would have to look for a job so that he could assist her other siblings.
