A very elegant pose of June Simpson in the 1950’s by Harrison Marks. Taken in one of the bedrooms in his flat, a simple shot using the natural light from the window to highlight the profile features and figure of June as she poses kneeling on the bed, as a ceramic cat looks on! A simply stunning view.
Another shot by Terry Sparks from my collection of his contact sheets and this time featuring Franni Leigh, who has already appeared on this site several times before here. This comes from a set of photos taken by Terry in August 1972 and the two previous colour shots on the bed are from this same set. Compared to my other posts and other shots I have seen this is very tame, but at the same time a very good shot of her, with you being able to see her small pert tits through that tight top.
As already explained Franni wasn’t her real name and beneath that wig she was actually fashion model Polly Eltes, who worked for the likes of David Bailey and others, with this being one of her few full nude modelling assignments. She also had brief careers as a British actress and singer, but today she has come full circle and has become a successful photographer behind the camera working for interiors and lifestyle magazines. Thanks as always to Terry for the fabulous insights into his time behind the camera with these models.
It’s also my last post before my week away, so there will be no further updates until I return. Thank you to everyone for the comments and emails showing support to the site after my moan about my images being used elsewhere as it’s really appreciated. I’ll take the time away to decide what to do next, but I’m sure I’ll be back after my break and will continue posting in some format, as it would be a shame to hide away all the 1000’s of images I now have in my archive because of a few selfish people!
Enjoy Franni and see you all soon 🙂
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 😉
Another photo from my own collection of Dawn Grayson images that I’ve collected over the years and this must go down as one of my favourite sets of Dawn with her clothes on! Scanned from a medium format colour negative, Dawn is wearing her familiar blue and white bikini that she wears in many other shots. But what really attracts me to the shot is the beautiful look on her face and that flowing red hair and the use of the lighting to highlight it. I’m a sucker for a redhead and even more so if it’s Dawn!
A topless Jutka Goz by Harrison Marks posing on a bed in a nice pair of blue panties. One from my own collection of negatives and posted following a discussion about Rusty Gaynor and boob jobs, in which member Driver also suggesting that maybe Jutka had hers done as well? Well having examined my Jutka collection up close and in detail I’d say hers were natural looking at the above shot as evidence. They seem to be quite firm but naturally hanging to me, but my god she does have a nice pair on display and as I’ve commented in other posts a cracking pair of nipples!
The things I have to do for my members in the name of research 🙂
