Any #portrait photographer will tell you how hard it can be to unmask a subject. The Latvian-born photographer @philippe_halsman_official came up with a solution: “jumpology.” For six years during the mid-1950s, he ended each portrait session by asking his subjects to jump. Few refused — impressive, with clientele like Richard Nixon, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and #MarilynMonroe, pictured here in 1954. “When we look at somebody’s face, we don’t know what he thinks or feels,” @philippe_halsman_official wrote in his “Jump Book,” first published in 1959 and recently reissued. This photo also appears in the exhibition #AstonishMe, on display until January 2016 at @jeudepaumeparis. #JumpBook #lensblog

So goodbye until tomorrow, friends #TFTClassof2017 #ourmo #einsteinonthrbeach #astonishme #lastfouryears

I'm astonished (see what I did there? 😉) by how much I enjoyed this book! We follow Joan, a ballerina not talented enough to ever leave the corps. Through multiple POVs, we get the story of Joan's torrid affair with a Russian dancer and defector, her marriage to her high school bff, and her life after ballet. Beautifully written, this book makes me curse my not pointe worthy feet. 💡💡💡💡 -Cole

I like to read books about dancing. In #AstonishMe by #MaggieShipstead one of the main topics is ballet. Joan wants to become a famous ballerina but then she gets pregnent. She decides to give up her dream and have a family instead. We follow Joan during her time as professional dancer as well as during her family live a few years later. That's what made that book so interesting to me.
The characters were great and Maggie Shipstead did a great job in creating relationships between the characters. I also liked that - even though dancing was one of the main topics in this story - it still approaches other things like love, friendship, jealousy, perfectionism or drugs. I definitely can recommend this book to people that like to read about ballet but also everyone else who likes a good story about family and deciding between following your dream or not.

Ich lese gerne Bücher übers Tanzen. In #DichTanzenZuSehen von Maggie Shipstead ist das Ballett eines der Hauptthemen. Joan träumt davon eine berühmte Ballerina zu werden, aber sie wird schwanger. Sie entscheidet sich für ihr Kind und damit gegen eine Karriere als Profitänzerin. Wir verfolgen Joan sowohl zu ihren Zeiten als junge Tänzerin, als auch später in ihrer Mutterrolle. Das macht dieses Buch so interessant für mich.
Die Figuren waren sympathisch und gut ausgearbeitet. Maggie Shipstead schuf realistische und interessante Beziehungen zwischen den einzelnen Charakteren. Ich fand außerdem super, dass - auch wenn Tanzen eines der Hauptthemen war - noch so viele andere Themen, wie Liebe, Freundschaft, Neid, Perfektionismus, Drogen, etc. behandelt wurden. Ich kann das Buch sowieso jedem empfehlen, der gerne übers Ballett liest, aber auch Leuten, die eine gute Geschichte über Familie oder Entscheidungsfindung in Fragen “Famile vs. Karriere“ lesen.

"Love in a ballet is something that does not exist and then suddenly does, its beginning marked by pantomime, faces fixed in rapture, a dance. After, when they are hidden in the wings or behind the curtain, the dancers will grimace like goblins, letting the pain show."

📚"Etonnez-moi" was a saying by Sergei Diaghilev the Russian ballet master. Astonish Me. #TBT to a book published in 2014 that's been on my list to read for awhile. It was the highly anticipated second novel by Maggie Shipstead and I thought it was brilliant. But I've also been around the ballet world for over 20 years so I understood every nuance she described from tendons to summer programs. 📚The novel spans several decades and is broken into four parts. It follows Joan (a very good but will never be great ballet dancer) from her childhood with her best friend Jacob to her professional years when she helps a Russian dancer defect (think Baryshnikov) to America. Upon becoming pregnant, Joan marries Jacob, retires from the ballet company and moves to suburban LA where she teaches ballet and nurtures budding dancers including her son and her neighbor's daughter, Chloe. The children grow and become competitive dancers themselves and things get very interesting. I'll leave it at that so as not to provide any spoilers! 📚If you've ever danced, been a dance mom or been obsessed with ballerinas, you will love this book. Regardless, the writing is superb but I think anyone not familiar with the industry could get bored with the details of her descriptions. My favorite passages were when Chloe was a mouse in the Nutcracker. I felt like I was back in the theater watching my girls during dress rehearsals. ⭐️ Special thanks to @hannahdapointe for leaving a bag of dead, stinky pointe shoes in your closet for my photo props! 📚#books #bookstagram #lovetoread #bookstagrammer #bookreview #booknerd #bookish #booklife #bibliophile #reading #instabook #fiction #bookstagramfeature #bookworm #bookaddict #readmore #tbt #bookstgramfeature #bookphoto #astonishme
