Opening Night: Melvin Sokolsky “Imagination in Flight”

July 7 @ 5:00 am - 8:00 pm

| free

Join Gilman Contemporary’s 10th Anniversary celebration and welcome iconic photographer Melvin Sokolsky to Sun Valley. Melvin’s illustrious career took of in the early 60’s when shooting for Harper’s Bazaar.

It was for this publication that he produced his most iconic and inventive series in 1963. This shoot of the 1963 Paris collection depicted models floating in giant clear plexiglass bubbles. The series combines surrealism and the world of high fashion, with a nod to the increasing popularity of street photography. The “bubble” series as it became known, is often credited for launching the trend of bold, artistic visions within fashion photography and continues to be an inspiration today.

The gallery will also present the photography of Michael Massaia whose candid black and white images of Central Park put a spotlight on the ordinary to reveal the true way each moment was felt. In addition Slovakian photographer Maria Svarbova, who creates evocative images of women in austere swimming pools, will also be on display.
