Almost finished with the A’s so I thought I’d start on the B’s and this little beauty of the very petite and gorgeous Barbara Halks By Harrison Marks. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bad photo of Barbara either in my collection or out on the net, but then there isn’t much that can go wrong with a body like that!
Another Angela today this time Angela Jones from an original 35mm colour slide from a private collection taken of her in front of those blinds with the Yellow Chrysanthemum. As discussed before by the looks of it a bit later in her modelling career, where she has a fuller figure and her tits seem slightly larger and have more droop to them? I do love her bigger darker areola than in her earlier shots. I’m not 100% sure on it being Angela due to the body changes, but facially it sure looks like her? And who says as models mature they don’t get sexier 🙂
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 😉
