Oh, it looks easy (okay, it looks impossible) but the amount of work this shot actually took is truly mind-boggling, most particularly when you realize there were cats involved. Yes, cats: Chihuahuas in alter form, fanged knick-knacks, short-tempered, incontinent attention sinkholes (huh, maybe they`re Mickey Rourke in alter form) in the shape of naked mole rats. Evil to the core.

It`s amazing to me nobody was killed during the shoot.

  2. Glad you like it. Halsmann was very creative; he said that once you got people jumping, you saw their real faces. They got lost in the childlike joy of the movement and their guard drops.
