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

  2. How lovely. Personally I love the one of girl on the water. Wouldn't be fun if we could float on water that way?

    Melissa...considering the epoch, the photos are marvelous, and they have the an expressive and artistic opportunity that for us today it is stupendous.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.
