Avra Bennett perfectly exposed in the studio by Harrison Marks. This uncensored version comes directly from the negative, but it was also published in Kamera No.37 P9 (1961) in it’s slightly censored version, not that you could tell as you can hardly see anything controversial in this shot!
The photo published in Kamera was also one of the pages that also included the camera and lighting settings for the shot, because let’s not forget Kamera was a study of photography through the female form and we all wanted to know the camera and light settings, didn’t we! So for all those that want to know, the details were Camera: Hasselblad, Exposure: 30th at f11, 4000 watts tungsten light on Weston 64 speed film. As I said a perfectly exposed shot of Arva, but I tend to focus on the less technical side of things, as I’m a much more of a visual person 😉
A very sexy shot of Avra Bennett posing in a black underwear set, including a low cut bra showing off her tits! This comes from Solo No.18 P9 by Harrison Marks and dedicated entirely to Avra.
I decided I needed some colour in my posts today, so what better way than with Avra Bennett from Kamera No.37 (1961). Taken by Harrison Marks and one of the two colour centre page shots, Avra appears through-out Kamera No.37 in various poses in and out this tub and around the boudoir.
Avra Bennett from the pages of Kamera No.37 (1961) where she also appeared on the cover and colour centre pages on the bedroom set, including various poses in a tin bath!
Avra Bennett sat astride a beautiful white horse from the pages of Kamera No.40 (1962). Avra appeared in Solo No.18, Kamera No.33, No.34, No.37, No.40, No.52 & No.66. She also appeared in the early glamour films ‘The Strip’ (Part 1 ) and ‘The Strip’ (Part 2), ‘After the Show’ and ‘Models Mechanics’ with Paula Page. She also appears in an outdoor set of photo’s with Paula, of which a couple appear in Kamera No.40.
The title is a reference to the nursery rhyme “Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross”, which also happens to be my home town. The full rhyme (should you care) is:
Ride a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady upon a white horse;
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
And she shall have music wherever she goes.
