Melvin Sokolsky’s 1963 Bubble Collection
The infamous photographer Melvin Sokolsky, born in Manhattan during the pre-war years, had surprisingly no formal education within his artistic craft. By reading, writing, and visiting museums, he eventually developed the necessary inspiration to start capturing images that would shape the future photography world.
He started to work for Harper’s Bazaar where he created some of his best work. His 1963 ‘Bubble’ collection was inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s The Gardens of Earthly Delights.
