Philippe Halsman is well known for having subjects jump to make them less inhibited and more relaxed. Here, the photographer reintroduced a little structure by having the subjects playfully lift themselves into an almost "seated" pose. The gritty urban setting is the perfect foil for the pseudo-rigidity of the pose and the formal attire.
