Slate.com: Philippe Halsman/Magnum Photos. Caption. Spain. Salvador Dali in bed in 1964, projecting pieces of dirty paper “to stimulate his inspiration.” Photographer Philippe Halsman collaborated with Salvador Dali for years and from time to time Today’s Pictures has featured some of the resulting images. This intimate, behind the scenes photo of Dali “at work” never quite fit into one of these galleries. Part of what I love about it is, in true Dali fashion, the photo and caption are completely disorienting.
