Crushing corsets it’s June Russell on the cover of the Harrison Marks publication Femme. The first issue of Femme appeared in the summer of 1958 It had a Harrison Marks’ photograph of June Russell on the cover but it featured photographs ‘from Britain, America and the Continent’ of nude and semi-nude female models by other photographers as well as GHM himself. The 1958 edition had no issue number and may have been a one-off, but another issue appeared some time later. From this issue ‘Femme’ reverted to the tried and tested 7″x 5″ pocketbook size and appeared as The New Femme No.1.
Stunning shot of June Russell in white corset, pink frilly knickers and fishnets and the floral wallpaper makes an appearance in many of GHM’s early shots.
Maureen Frawley from a restored 10 x 8 silver gelatin photo sent over by Scott. To say that corset is squeezing things in a bit would be an understatement and I could never see the appeal of such a device that constricts things so much! Yes, they have a certain sexy appeal to them visually, but they must have been so uncomfortable to wear and all to have a slim waist! If you’ve got it, flaunt it I say as there’s nothing wrong with a few curves!
I’d never seen many shots of Maureen until this one and then it reminded me I’d seen her in this outfit before. Racking my brains I realised it was as part of the trio model index cards I published a while back and that she appears there under the name Ashley Deane with the vital statistics of 37-23-37 and 5′ 5″ tall.
A beautiful shot of Ann Walker laying on the bed highlighted by the light from a window. Sometimes it’s not always about the nudity (OK, most of the time it is!) rather than the tease or anticipation of what is to come. This is one of those shots that falls into that category, where we see Ann’s bosom and cleavage straining in her bra, almost ready to burst free. You can just imagine it and what is to come!
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 🙂

A very erotic shot of Erica from Kamera Winter Special P42 (1966) on the loft set by Harrison Marks. I’m loving the corset and fishnets, but for me it’s the sheer blouse and the way you get to see those beautiful big tits through the material that make this shot. Although published in 1966, I suspect this shot was taken much earlier, probably 1959 around the time her Solo appearance was published?
Caron Gardner from a restored 35mm slide dated September 1962, where she manages to look both sophisticated with a hint of kinky all at the same time! There’s so much going on in this view from the elegance of the stockings and earrings Caron is wearing, contrasted by the cut-out bra squeezing her tits up and out, plus the corset cover by the sheer panties! Plenty to keep a red blooded male busy!
The Perfect Pat Ebden looking absolutely gorgeous as she drops her dress to reveal a stunning combination of black low cut bra, corset and black stockings. This is the second shot of three that I have from this set of Pat, with the other two including this one, showing Pat in the same outfit kneeling on the bed smoking. A perfect pose from Pat!
