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". Although I know that not all men think that way I was surprised to learn that some still do, so I went on to imagine a parallel universe, where roles are inverted and men are given a taste of their own sexist poison." — Eli Rezkalla.
