Melvin Sokolsky created an iconic series of fashion photographs in 1963 for Harper's Bazaar:
[The] 'Bubble' series was created by fashion photographer Melvin Sokolsky for the Harper's Bazaar 1963 Spring Collection. The series, inspired by The Garden of Earthly Delights and Surrealism, depicts model Simone D'Aillencourt in large bubbles floating through the Paris cityscape. The plexiglass bubble was hung from a crane in various locations throughout Paris.[1]
