Melvin Sokolsky pushed boundaries in his 20’s with the Bubble & Fly collection. He conceptualized the Bubble sphere for Harper’s Bazaar working with Diana Vreeland for the fall fashion in 1963. In 1965, he once again captured the Harper’s Bazaar coveted fall cover and fashion issue with a special corset he created that allowed the model to be suspended in mid air. The negative was misplaced for nearly forty years. Recently found in his archive, Dior Wings represents Melvin’s vision in all its grace and glory, defying every expectation and making the viewer believe that a woman can fly.- the Dior Wings is one the most coveted from that collection.
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.“
