About

Paper 30 x 39 1/4 inches; Image 27 1/2 x 35 1/2 inches Edition 4 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, a woman dressed in a formal white gown, heels, and statement earrings, rests upon a couch. The elegant gown is in stark contrast with the cheetah-printed pillows adorning the couch. In this black-and-white photograph, Sokolsky fabricates a wondrous dreamscape. 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.
