This exhibition highlights the work of renowned American portrait photographer Philippe Halsman (1906-1979) and a selection by current members of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP). Philippe Halsman was the first president of the ASMP, an organization dedicated to serving the professional photographic community for over 70 years. Halsman photographed some of the most famous figures in early 20th American history including Salvador Dali, Marilyn Monroe and Albert Einstein. This timeless collection is on loan from the Mizel Museum and Collector Allen Goldstone of Boulder. The American Society of Media Photographers collection was juried by prominent members of Colorado’s artistic community including Jim Robischon, Loretta Young-Gautier and Ben Sherrill.
