Pamela Green

There is no denying the obvious visual talents of the beautiful Pamela Green, one of the most popular of all the Harrison Marks models, but she was also a very talented artist. Her actual modelling career started in 1948 through a booking mistake as a figure model for the life class at St. Martin’s School of Art in London where she was a student on a three year course Fashion Drawing. At the time she only posed for the Costume and Fashion classes for which she was paid the princely sum of 4/6 (23p!) an hour.She recalls – The day of my initiation into nude work happened by accident. I was called at short notice to fill in for a class where the model had failed to show up. The master was waiting impatiently. “Hurry up and get undressed, we’re late”. This was a life class. A quick look around the room showed me that the students were unknown to me as was the master. I thought “Well, there has got to be a first time”. I undressed behind the screen, and slipping on my coat walked to the rostrum. The master took my coat, helped me up and asked me to strike a pose. I stood facing the class, legs slightly apart with my weight on one hip. I have never felt quite so naked standing in front of about 20 students. After about 15 minutes I began to relax a little, everyone was concentrating on their drawing and by the end of the class it seemed the most natural thing to do. I collected my money from the office and discovered that I was paid more; five shillings instead of 4/6. I decided to begin modelling for the life classes and joined a small band of very young models who were all posing for the necessities in life, like their next meal. I was the eldest of the group at seventeen.*1

Pamela Green first met George Harrison Marks in the summer of 1953. George was a theatrical photographer and they met in connection with Pamela’s role in Bernard Delfont’s Folies Bergere which was running at the Prince of Wales Theatre at the time.  It was Pamela who persuaded George to try his hand at nude photography. Between them, they created the famous glamour model, Rita Landre, who no-one guessed was actually Pamela in disguise. It was clear that George and Pamela were an excellent professional team. G Harrison Marks Limited was formed, George’s photographic expertise perfectly complemented by Pamela’s skilled costume and set design – a skill informed by her studies as a fine artist, at St Martin’s School of Art.*2
