Caroline Coon – Moves Like Jagger!

A great shot of Caroline Coon from the 1970’s that appeared in Fiesta and was taken by Terry Sparks, which also had an accompanying little story from Terry about Caroline and her friend, which will make the above title a little clearer. Story from Terry below:

Also enclosed is one of my shots of Caroline Coon scanned from a page in Fiesta. I worked with her several times and I got to know her quite well and one day she brought her flatmate in to see me, an American girl called Marsha Hunt. Marsha was desperate for money and so I did a stills session with her and also an 8mm Glamour film shot at Ewhurst. She was very difficult to work with, full of her own importance and not really wanting to be photographed but needed the cash. A few weeks later she landed a part in the original London stage production of Hair and then later she met Mick Jagger and they had a child called Karis.  I knew Mick Jagger vaguely as we both attended the same Grammar School, although he was a few years behind me.  As  far as I know, none of my pics of Marsha were ever published, I have a suspicion she may have done a deal with Russell Gay after landing her part in Hair, but I am only guessing.

I just love these little stories that come from Terry with his pictures as they give us a snapshot of things back then.  Terry calls them bits of useless information, but I disagree 🙂

Gill Evans – Fiesta

Another Gill Evans shot with her wearing the blonde wig, this time from Fiesta Magazine.  My notes say from Fiesta Vol.2 No.3 (May 1968), but checking over on CreamCheese I don’t see this shot in the magazine scans, so who knows where this came from?

Here She Comes – HM Glamour Advert Featuring Pamela Green

I was recently fortunate enough to acquire a copy of Fiesta Spring Special 1957 magazineOn flicking through the pages I was pleased to see several photo sets by HM and this fascinating advert on the back pages.

As you can see it features Pamela Green, but also offers the reader ‘A new series of figure and pin-up studies.  Photographed in revolutionary 3D giving 100% added depth and brilliance’  I’m not sure I’ve come across any such photo’s but would love to see some if anyone has copies?  Anyway still a fascinating insight into a magazine and adverts from over 50 years ago!
