Sandra Bromley by Harrison Marks on the backstage set with spotlight in the background. A great shot of Sandra posing on a leopardskin hug, but no idea if this was ever published in Kamera or the edition or year it may have appeared if it did. I assume it did get published as it’s too good to leave out in my opinion?
A fabulously sexy shot of Vera Day posing backstage in black corset, panties and stockings by Harrison Marks. A number of shots from this shoot appeared in the hardback book ‘Vera’ but this shot from an original negative of Vera never actually made it into the book, I wonder why? A simply stunning and very sexy shot of Vera without really revealing anything 🙂

Monique Devereux posing backstage by Harrison Marks in some very fancy knickers! I keep saying it, but I’ll say it again, why does it always look like she’s sucking her tummy in, in many of the shots I’ve seen! You can even seen her rib cage in this shot, which looks slightly odd! Looking back at all the shots of her I’ve posted, her tummy is always sucked in and the ribs are showing, so maybe I’m doing her a dis-service and that was her normal figure?
Two stunning shots of Vera Day from the book 1962 book ‘Vera’ by Harrison Marks. What’s not to like about these two shots of Vera in striking corset, matching black panties and stockings posing on the backstage set. I love the coloured shot of her by the ladder, but there’s something quite domineering about the second one with the way she’s stood, hands on hips! I know if I was confronted by her looking like that I’d do as I’m told 🙂
Another great image of June by Harrison Marks on the backstage set on the cover of Kamera No.61 (1964) and one that I also have a negative of the same shot (below). The backstage shoot of June posing with the long black negligee is a very well published and known set that crops up regularly and this shot is one of those well known images. The photo used for the Kamera cover is a wider and much more vibrant shot than the one from the negative, but obviously the negative shot is clearer and the colours restored, so more natural. Great to see both together with the differences for comparison. The negative was duplicated (Internegative) from an original for selling as part of the June Palmer slide set No.60, so probably the reason it’s cropped more than the cover shot and original. As an aside, most of the June 35mm negatives you see being sold individually or in sets are probably duplicates of the original negative.
