At the 60th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival, Alex Majoli, a Magnum photographer accustomed to working in the rawest of social climates, concentrated his camera towards the fast moving Cannes crowd. In a homage to previous Magnum photographer Philip Halsman s cult Jumpology series in the 1960s, Majoli aimed to reveal the true persona behind the celebrity at the time of jumping, their attention is concentrated on the jump, and at this moment, the mask falls... (Halsman) Nearly 120 high profile artists have jumped for Majoli from politicians to starlets, Al Gore to Monica Bellucci, Samuel L. Jackson and Marianne Faithfull, all willing to abandon the self-preserve usually performed and required of their lives in the spotlight. His dynamic library of leaping stars was exhibited in November 2007 at la Pinacothque in Paris, under the title One Jump! so named after Al Gore agreed to do it, ...but only ONE JUMP! In One Jump , Majoli has created a huge and energetic series, the perfect contrast in the context of Cannes Film Festival, of choreographed yet momentarily free personalities.
