"Dali Atomicus" by Philippe Halsman - 1948

....This was shot live. It took 26 tries to get it over five hours - Halsman counted to four, Dali leapt, 3 assistants threw the cats, one threw the water from a bucket and Halsman's wife held the chair. Its all done in the camera.

Just some art that I found interesting

How do you get the job of "Cat thrower"?
