About

Paper 35 1/4 x 30 inches; Image 27 1/2 x 27 1/2 inches Edition 5 of 7 Signed, titled, dated, and numbered in pencil on print verso The American photographer, Melvin Sokolsky, began working in the 1950’s during one of fashion photography’s golden ages. Born and raised in New York City, Sokolsky initiated his career as a photographer in his early 20’s. At 21 years old, he began photographing for Harper's Bazaar. He went on to have a proliferate career in editorial portraiture, advertising, and fashion photography. In this platinum-print image, from Sokolsky’s proliferate series often referred to as “Sokolsky’s Bubbles”, a model strikes a remarkably elegant pose as she stands inside a plexiglass bubble. The image reflects the chicness of Parisian society, showcasing the city’s beautiful architecture and couture fashion. In this black-and-white photograph, Sokolsky reflects his creative ambition and ability to think outside the box. His work is characterized by a sense of fantasy and invention, and the influence of Surrealism is apparent in his whimsical plays with proportion and reality.
