* Sam Goldstein

Goldstein took “assignment Bubbles” – the job of imprisoning showplaces of the world’s largest metropolis in plastic bubbles and taking their pictures.  To aid in this operation, he enlisted the services of Margaret Halloway, a four-and-a-half-year-old  professional model, to whom fell the task of blowing the bubbles that caught the reflections of the many facets that make up “Baghdad on the Subway.”
