Sokolsky’s Bubbles, 1963

sokolsky1If these MELVIN SOKOLSKY images were published today everyone would assume they were photoshopped, but these now iconic images were captured in Paris for Harper’s Bazaar in 1963. MELVIN was inspired by surrealist painter Salvador Dali and wanted to create a one of a kind fashion editorial, so he dressed Simone D’Aillencourt in haute couture and placed her inside a plexiglass bubble that Melvin suspended from a crane in various locations around Paris. The only photographic touch-up required post shoot was the simple removal of the cord attached to the crane. Proof we are only limited by our own imagination.
