Surrealist artist Salvador Dali poses for the photograph known as Dali Atomicus, a collaboration between himself and American photographer Philippe Halsman that was published in 1948.

The photo was meant to explore the idea of suspension, and thus used wires, thrown objects, and Dali’s own jumping to create a tableau of objects in mid-air. It reportedly took 28 tries to get right.
