Photographer Questions Modern Day Sexism By Reversing Gender Roles in Vintage Ads

"In a parallel universe" is a series of fictional images, recreated from real ads in the mad men era, that question modern day sexism: showing it through a humorous light to spark a conversation through role play by visual artist Eli Rezkallah   "Last Thanksgiving, I overheard my uncles talk about how women are better off cooking, taking care of the kitchen, and fulfilling "their womanly duties".

Here are a sampling of the advertisements through the first 25 years of this campaign.
