Barbara Peckinpaugh by Edmund Leja (Original)

The elegant Barbara Peckinpaugh taken by US photographer Edmund Leja in 1980 from a set of original contact sheets. Barbara only worked as a model for a short period of time from 1980 until 1986 under various names and seems to have mostly done glamour or softcore work apart from two hardcore movies. Sadly no longer with us, as It’s reported that after her short career in modelling she committed suicide. In nearly all her photo’s she’s blonde, but this shot was at the beginning of her short career, so obviously her natural colour.

Edmund Leja (1919-2002) was based in West Hollywood at the heart of the early Southern California nude photography industry. He was also friends with Andre de Dienes and both shared several model contacts including Diane Webber, Collette Berne (Playboy cover model, July 1960), as well as Sue Snow and Tammy Saunders. Leja discovered and photographed three Playmates for Playboy magazine Teddi Smith, Miss July 1960, Donna Michelle, Miss December 1963 (and 1964’s Playmate of the Year), and Lori Winston, Miss June 1964.
 
Edmund Leja photographed over 200 models between the 1940s and the early 1980s and until I came across these shots of Barbara I assumed he only shot glamour shots similar to those published in Playboy. Apparently not as there are several shots of Barbara showing off a lot more (as members can see), but at least the collars and cuffs match showing she was a natural brunette 🙂
 

Brigitte Lahaie – Brunette or Blonde? (Original)

The unmistakable Brigitte Lahaie and another favourite in the B’s, either as a brunette as above or her more common look as a blonde later on in her career. This has to be one of my favourite non blonde shots of her and not even that risque compared to a lot in my collection. A very elegant look to this shot and I love how the stockings and suspender belt match with the hair at both ends 🙂

Brigitte Lahaie – Reclined in Green (1977)

I’m a big fan of Brigitte Lahaie (yes, another favourite!), either as a brunette as above or her more common look as a blonde later on in her career and beyond. She probably doesn’t fit into this site completely as she is best known as being a French Porn Star, appearing in numerous hardcore films and photo shoots, but I still like her! I tend to shy away from the hardcore stuff and enjoy the more glamour shots of her, although I have been known to post the odd harder shot of her over on my old blog.

The shots above are from unpublished negatives, but a set of Brigitte in this green chemise appeared in a European hardcore magazine titled Sexy Girls No.25 (1977) under the name Alice. I had a copy of this magazine and the poses of the girls left little to the imagination and you can see the set of Brigitte, plus others here.

 

June Palmer – On The Rocks Again! (Original)

One from my own collection of June negatives, showing June posing nude on the rocks and from the same set as these previously published shots from the same set.

Annette Johnson – Pond-side Pose!

A dark haired Annette Johnson from the late 1960’s posing for the camera on the edge of what looks like a rockery or pond.  I’m glad to see the photographer provided a cushion for her to sit on, otherwise that hard rock could have been quite uncomfortable on her bits!

Eve Eden – Cleavage You Could Park a Bike In!

It must be an intermammary cleft sort of day for me today, or cleavage shots to the rest of you! Another great smile from Even Eden, but nothing can distract you from looking at that great cleavage on show and as the title suggests you could park a bike between those amongst of things!

Lorraine Burnett – Black Panties, Stockings & Garters (Coloured)

Another Lorraine Burnett image and another great coloured version from Oldiznewagain.  it seems that Lorraine shots tend to lend themselves to being coloured as the last coloured shot was very good as well.

She Keeps Popping Up, But Who Is She?

Another Harrison Marks model that pops up on a regular basis through out Kamera, but I have no idea who it is! Original thoughts were Jackie Salt or Rusty Gaynor, but on closer examination the figures and dates don’t match. This shot is from Kamera No.40 (1962), but she also appears in Kamera No.29 (1960) from the same set?
