The final post for ‘Black Friday’ and this is a scan of an original negative by Harrison Marks of an unknown model. Taken in the studio I love the way the light from the left highlights the face and upper body of this dark beauty. At first I thought she was leaning on one arm to get into this pose, but a further negative from this set suggests that she was leaning over as someone held her arm out of shot. Either way it’s a rather unique angle, but captures her body perfectly especially the light cascading over her dark body and those rather big nipples!
Continuing a theme here on Black Friday 🙂 This time the fabulous Veronica Diemen who actually has a legitimate right to appear on this blog as someone that posed for Harrison Marks and appeared in his 1971 glamour film ‘Tailor Made’. Not that I need an excuse to post such a beauty, but what a great shot of her posing in sheer white knickers and pearls. Also clever use of the knickers to hide the scar to the bottom left of her navel, you can just see it if you look hard enough, plus the outline of her dark bush!
A new solo image of Venetia Day by Terry Sparks. This time a full frontal shot of her as she poses thigh deep in the sea off Rhodes, with the sun glistening off her wet body and a hint in the shadows of her dark thick bush! A scan from one of 3 sets of contact sheets of Venetia I’ve recently acquired, so I now have plenty more to come.
It seems fitting to do a post of Venetia today as it is Black Friday (boom boom!) Not quite what they meant or very politically correct, but then I prefer my Black Friday to the madness out there!
An original still of the stunning Sylvia Bayo (Lucienne Camille) on the set of the 1970 Harrison Marks glamour film Cous Cous. This particular shot gives a great full length view of her perfect body highlighted by the gold chain around her waist. Not a very politically correct film now, not that many of GHM’s films ever were, but this involved lots of naked women from different colours as slaves in a harem wearing nothing more than chains and being whipped by an evil Sheik. Mind you I was never one for being very PC on this site, especially when it comes to Sylvia and what’s not to enjoy 🙂
A beautiful shot of ebony model Agnes Grieves taken by Terry Sparks. Not a model I was aware of until coming across this set of contact sheets of her by Terry, but she does remind me of another ebony model that also posed for Terry, Sylvia Bayo.
I have 9 contact sheets featuring Agnes by Terry with over 140 images of her posing in various locations around a house including bedroom, living room and some full nude shots in the bath. I have no idea where these were taken but Terry has commented that they were taken on 21st September 1971.
As an aside I recently acquired a further 8 sets of contact sheets of other models taken by Terry Sparks, so more new models to come including some fantastic sets of Terry Graham and Franni Leigh 🙂
Paula Ellis posing in the sauna by Harrison Marks and from a scan of the original negative. Paula only seems to have posed for one set of photo’s by Harrison Marks and all were on the sauna set, or it could have possibly been a real sauna, but I’m not sure? Several images of Paula were published in New Kamera No.1 (1969) and all were black and white, although I do have several colour negatives of her from the same set.
GHM had very few coloured models in his early publications, unless you count the likes of Thelma or Merle Henry and a few other models that had a Latin look to them, but not many that I would class as ebony/black? It seems he decided to rectify that in New Kamera, as we have both Paula Ellis and Virginia Jones in the same edition and fabulous they both are! Paula had a great figure with big full tits and a thick dark bush, but unfortunately she also had a very bad scar down her stomach and across her tummy button, hence the well place hand or arms across her stomach in some of her shots.
I’m having a bit of a black day in the literal sense, so a few more shots of Sylvia Bayo are in order. This time three more pages from Nylon Flash No.19, with the full magazine including a full 48 pages of Sylvia and friend stripping out of their underwear. The contrast of Sylvia in white panties against the other model in black panties works perfectly. The opposing underwear colours and skin tones highlight the assets of each other throughout and here they can be seen checking out each others tits and figures, but know which I prefer. Shame the magazine doesn’t go further than a topless strip with a flash of bum, as I’d love to have seen them comparing other parts together too 😉
