Breath in Monique!

Another original image, this time Monique Devereux against the backdrop of a brick wall!  I must admit that MD isn’t one of my favourite GHM models  she always looks like she’s ‘sucking everything in’ when being photographed and it just doesn’t look natural.  Saying that she appears the same in nearly all of her shots, so perhaps I’m doing her an injustice!

On a more trivia note, we know that Monique Devereux (Monique Leitzau) was the name given to her by GHM, but was he a fan of the TV western, Hotel de Paree (1959–1960) as one of the main characters played by Judi Meredith was Monique Deveraux! I’m never sure of the Devereux spelling with GHM, as seen it in all these versions Deveraux, Devereaux, Devereux and I’ve probably used all versions at different times!  Add Marie Deveraux into the mix and it justs get damn confusing!

Big Hair, Nice Bush, But Who Is She?

I’ve seen this model in other GHM publications before, but as of yet I’ve not been unable to identify this model with the big hair and big bush!  For reference this shot comes from the GHM publication Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.1 ‘A Series of Natural Art Studies’  It was a 64 page medium format (8″ x 10″,  200mm x 250mm) magazine published around 1969 by Roydock books Ltd if that helps?  She also appeared in single shots through-out Kamera at the same time and in Magnificent Models No.2 by Nostalgia Publications.  Two more smaller shots below.


I’ve also created an ‘Unknown Models‘ page to list all of the unknown models I come across, so that you can hopefully help me identify these mysterious beauties?  There is also a link to the page on the right hand side under Models.


Pam Arnold

Back to nature with Pam Arnold showing some bush on a leopard skin rug. Another model only appearing in one copy of Kamera in 1968 (Kamera No.88). This image appeared in Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.1, Harrison Marks – A Series of Natural Art Studies, published in 1969 by Roydock books Ltd.

Annie Walker – The Mystique of a Mature Woman

An older Ann Walker (34) posing in Mayfair Magazine Vol.11 No.10 (October 1974), original images and text included below.  She sure looked good and I love the last two images below, what a glorious full natural bush she had!  Anyone know if the modelling agency part was true and if she’s still in the business?


The Mystique of the Mature Woman – Annie Walker

Back in the supposedly swinging sixties before Mayfair and others like it appeared to revolutionise British men’s magazines,  the ‘pin-up’ reigned supreme.  Black and white, coyle posed, tastefully lit studies in which bare boobs were OK, but pubes and sizzle were strictly verboten.  Even so, despite the blandness of the studies, one girl seemed to project an aura of sexuality that set her apart.  Her name was Annie Walker and she was just about the most popular and sought after model of that time.


Some ten years ago though, Annie gave up modelling and opened her own highly successful modelling agency in North London.  She’s now 34 years old, a sleek 34-22-34 and pleased to return if only temporary, to the modelling scene.  ‘It’s all very different now’ maintains Annie.  ‘Everything used to be terribly posed, but now it’s much more relaxed and natural.  I wouldn’t have posed for the more blatant pictures that some magazines carry at the moment – I much prefer Mayfair’s style.’  Annie’s modelling career started when she was 18, posing for students at the St Martin’s Art School in London, from which she quickly moved on to magazine work and the her own agency.


With Annie’s background and past appeal in mind, she seemed to us the natural answer to all the oft-repeated requests for a photoset on an ‘older woman’.  ‘I don’t know whether younger men see me as the mature type,.’ says Annie.  ‘To be honest it’s not something I’ve really thought about.  But I do like to be treated as a woman – being the chased rather than the chaser. I’m not married, so I socialise a lot. Men? Oh, those in their 30’s usually.’ Which says much for their taste. Here’s to ten years time Annie.
