In the late 40s Halsman started collaborating with Salvador Dali. This photo of three flying cats, a bucket of thrown water, and Salvador Dali in mid air took 28 attempts, and was not touched up. The title of the photo references Dalí's painting, Leda Atomica, which can be seen to the right of the photograph. The black and white, the playfulness, and of course Dali's great black suit inspired this week's art to fashion post.
