Gwen Ford in just black stockings and high heels posing on a sheepkin rug from a couple of restored 35mm slides at Strobe Studios. I assume it’s Strobe as the second shot shows several June Palmer prints on the wall, either that or the studio was a big fan of June, but I think it was Strobe? Two great shots of Gwen with her hair up, if still slightly pink after restoration and nice electric fire in both shots 🙂
I love a good mystery normally, but sometimes recognising the face (and body) of a model, but not remembering her name can be frustrating! This model is one example, as I’ve published one of my own negatives by Harrison Marks here before, but was unable to name her. Now I’ve been sent a full set of the same model posing and stripping with a bamboo ladder, but again it was driving me made as to who she was!
Well by chance today I was looking back through my video’s and noticed this post of ‘Brides in The Bath – Part 2’ and damn me, but there she is in the image and video (2:47) as a can-can girl! Then coincidence number two, I was looking through a copy of Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.2 and came across these shots of Danielle Denese. Bugger me it seems to be the same model in all of them, so have I identified her as Danielle Denese? My track record of identifying models isn’t bad, but I would say this is one of those 50/50 shots, as the hair, body and facial features match, but I have very few named images of Danielle to actually reference.
I’m going with them all being the same model and it being the model named as ‘Danielle Denese’ by Harrison Marks, because there’s no guarantee that’s her name or she didn’t model under another name? So one more off the unknown list unless anyone can prove otherwise 🙂
