Women In Bubbles.

How awesome are these photos? Photographer Melvin Sokolsky snapped these shots of women in a bubble for Harper's in 1963. I'm loving the vintage vibe to them, aren't you, friends? And the message is a great one too: Just as the Women's Liberation Movement was forming, women still felt trapped. Genius. xoxo

There is something so glamourous but also so wrong about these photos! I definitely get the trapped feeling from them...what a unique way to portray such a message!

Hey, I wanted to know of any tool or i think you call them Aps to show you the best deals? I'm aware that you can type in a search in google and you only get the advertisers that paid the most, not the best deals. Any help would be great.

Melvin's the "Bubble" series of photographs depicted fashion models "floating" in giant clear plastic bubbles suspended in midair above the River Seine in Paris.
