wraparound magazine, issue 4, had a really good interview with sokolsky.
unfortunately, the magazine is now defunct, but i have it kicking around somewhere,
maybe if i have the wherewithall i'll transcribe some of it.
if anyone can find the magazine though, you should pick it up..sorry to see it go under after 5 issues.

-edit- that's a very nice little avatar!

All of the photos are so creative and beautiful! I love the bubble ones . . . a few years back there was a spread with Ben Stiller and I forget which model . . . but it was in the same style and there was a bubble photo and some floating images as well . . . I don't know if sokolsky did those but they were very similar . . .



If I wasn't studying abroad in London right now I would rifle through my enormous piles of magazines and scan it in

Thanks for the link !
The pictures are so creative and dreamy! The only ones I had seen before are the bubbles, which I adore, but the others are new for me.

I love them as well, and I've probably spend too much time looking at them on his website.
I love the flying- and bubbles once
