Melvin Sokolsky (born October 9, 1933) is an American photographer and film director.
Born in New York City in 1933, Sokolsky was raised on the lower east side. He had no formal training in photography, but started to use his father’s box camera at about the age of ten. Always analytical, he started to realize the role that emulsion played as he compared his own photographs with those his father had kept in albums through the years. “I could never make my photographs of Butch the dog look like the pearly finish of my father’s prints, and it was then that I realized the importance of the emulsion of the day.“
