Margaret Nolan laying in the sand dunes by Harrison Marks and taken from his hardback book She Walks in Beauty, P104 (1964). A beautiful shot in the sand and a great smile from Margaret 🙂
OK, I’ll openly admit that Annette Johnson isn’t one of my favourite models, but don’t ask me to explain why because I can’t really put a finger on why I don’t like her, I just don’t compared to others. Saying that the shots of her taken by Harrison Marks are some of the better ones I’ve seen of her, plus those by Ed Alexander and this shot is a good example. Taken by Harrison Marks outside Ewhurst Manor, this is one of four shots of her that appear in the hardback book ‘She Walks in Beauty’ (1964). All four shots are located in the grounds of Ewhurst, which is unusual in that nearly almost all of the photo’s in SWiB are taken on location down in Devon, apart from a small sub-set based at Ewhurst.
This shot is outside the front of Ewhurst, as you can see the driveway, but what is more bizarre about the shot, other than Annette’s pose, is the bowl of fruit on the ground in front of her! What’s that all about? It also looks like the retouchers had a field day hiding her nether region and did a poor job! Despite all of the above Annette doesn’t look too bad in the shot 🙂
All of the images I’ve published from the 1964 Harrison Marks hardback book ‘She Walks in Beauty’. Published in chronological order with model names where known 🙂
A very dramatic pose amongst the hay from Margaret Nolan from page 111 of She Walks in Beauty (1964) by Harrison Marks. I think this must be one of the last solo shots of Margaret I’ve got to publish from SWiB, of which there are over 10 shots of her, but there are still a few duo shots of her to publish with Maria Clarence.
Margaret Nolan in a kneeling pose in the shallow waters at the sea edge from the ‘She Walks in Beauty’ (1964). Taken by Harrison Marks on location down in Cornwall it’s a very graceful pose from Margaret that shows off her wet curves to full effect. No idea on the location of this shot other than it was down on a beach in Cornwall somewhere 🙂
Continuing the theme from this set, another shot of Margaret Nolan on location wedged naked between a couple of large tree trunks! Taken at a different time to the others, this shot appears to be on location down in Cornwall and appeared in the hardback publication ‘She Walks in Beauty’ P126 (1964). The weir/waterfall in the background also appear in various shots taken for Kamera on Location 1966, so obviously a favourite spot for GHM.
Sophia Dawn and Frankie Young on a beach in Cornwall in some unusual poses (artistic?) from the hardback publication, She Walks in Beauty (1964). One of GHM’s favourite locations for outdoor work in the mid 1960’s. I do sometimes wonder how he got away with all this nakedness on the beach, but I suppose the beaches were less crowded back then, or they were up early!
Two contrasting shots taken of Petrina Forsythe by Harrison Marks from She Walks in Beauty (1964). The top shot a typical pose on the beach that many models adopted for this publication, but the bottom one a more arty shot using an old derelict tin mine as a backdrop.
A nude June enjoying the sun while posing in the hay on location. Another beautifully posed shot of June by Harrison Marks from his book ‘She Walks in Beauty (1964)
Two more shots of June from She Walks in Beauty (1964), this time posing on a Cornwall beach in a long white negligee/dressing gown. The first image is a typical June pose that shows off her curves to wonderful effect. The second image being a much more artistic effort!
