Born on the 4th August 1940, her parents little knowing the impact that in later years she was to make on the male population, both at home and abroad. With June Palmer’s fabulous figure, hair and face, she was the stuff boys and men dreamt of, June Palmer’s pin-up poses adorning many a wall and locker door, or workshop coffee room table in one of the many magazines she appeared in.
June started posing for Kamera and Solo at the age of 17 with photographer Harrison Marks (which her work is best known for), as well as Russell Gay. Harrison almost didn’t use her, because of giggling too much during test shots, and had found her impossible to work with. Although June Palmer was often associated with George Harrison Marks, there was another partnership less well known. That of June Palmer and Arthur Howell, the man who both discovered and married her. They were together for about ten years and together ran ‘Strobe Studio’, Clapham, London.
Among the men’s magazines Palmer graced the covers of and/or had pictorials in are “Fiesta,” “Parade,” “Adam,” “Beau,” “Dapper,” “Modern Man,” “Sir!,” and “Monsieur.” She appears as herself in the comedic documentary The Naked World of Harrison Marks (1967) and also acted in a few “nudie-cutie” loops for Marks.
