This photograph was a collaboration between photographer Philippe Halsman and well known surrealist artist Salvador Dali. The photograph is a depiction of 7 females contorting their bodies to form a giant skull, which is ironically, only comprised of skin. The final image has been described as Dali in the foreground acting like a leader or master of the models. Some have even called him a “circus ringleader.” Either way, this iconic image was creative and executed very well. Not to mention this is done sans Photoshop.
Here are some behind the scenes and outtakes from the shoot.
