Marie Provost posing in a bedroom of GHM’s flat from a scan of one of my original negatives. The original image of Marie appeared in Kamera No.61 P32 (1964) and I’ve cropped this image to the same proportion as the magazine. I love Marie’s very 1960’s beehive hairstyle, plus the this images is slightly less censored than the magazine version, with just a hint of things showing between her legs, but not much!
Another great image of June by Harrison Marks on the backstage set on the cover of Kamera No.61 (1964) and one that I also have a negative of the same shot (below). The backstage shoot of June posing with the long black negligee is a very well published and known set that crops up regularly and this shot is one of those well known images. The photo used for the Kamera cover is a wider and much more vibrant shot than the one from the negative, but obviously the negative shot is clearer and the colours restored, so more natural. Great to see both together with the differences for comparison. The negative was duplicated (Internegative) from an original for selling as part of the June Palmer slide set No.60, so probably the reason it’s cropped more than the cover shot and original. As an aside, most of the June 35mm negatives you see being sold individually or in sets are probably duplicates of the original negative.
