Dawn Grayson – The Magic in a Face

I originally published a version of this image under the title ‘Shattered Glass’ in June 2013 when I came across the image of Dawn and it was instantly a favourite. Well now I’ve found where it came from and have an original copy, as above. It was originally published in ‘Ed Alexander Photographs English Beauties’ on page 84, where he describes expressions of the face can change the mood of a photograph.

Incidentally I prefer this version to the first I found, as it looks better in black and white and Dawn looks good with a beauty spot!

Unknown Beauty Spot Blonde (Gaby Rougier)

This stunning unknown blonde only appears twice in Kamera No.29 (1960), but certainly has an impact, but can anyone identify her as I can’t?  In the second shot she appears posing with Jean Spaul.

Update: This model has now been identified as Gaby Rougier, thanks to Jeff 🙂

Sophia Dawn – A Designing Young Lady!

Some more tri-colour goodness from the pages of Parade!  This time it’s the alluring Sophia Dawn in various stages of undress without actually getting undressed.  This double paged spread was from Parade No.1201 (15th December, 1962) and my favourite shot must be the one directly above, where she nearly got all her kit off!  

There was something about the sheer elegance of Sophia Dawn that just does it for me.  The lips, eyes and the beauty spot and that’s before getting any further than her face!

Another original scan of mine!
