Audrey Crane posing in the studio for Harrison Marks from an original negative scan. This shot was actually published in Kamera No.37 P27 (1961) along with several others of Audrey stripping from a very over the top dress edged with big spotted frills!
I originally posted the published version of this Audrey Crane shot here in 2014. The original retouched version appeared in Kamera No.37 P23 (1961), but I now have the original negative of the shot, so thought I’d post a much clearer and uncensored version. As you can see the clarity is much better and even shows that Audrey had a fine covering of hair down below that the retouchers attempted to remove and not very well I may add!
I do like finding the originals of shots published in Kamera such as this 🙂
Avra Bennett perfectly exposed in the studio by Harrison Marks. This uncensored version comes directly from the negative, but it was also published in Kamera No.37 P9 (1961) in it’s slightly censored version, not that you could tell as you can hardly see anything controversial in this shot!
The photo published in Kamera was also one of the pages that also included the camera and lighting settings for the shot, because let’s not forget Kamera was a study of photography through the female form and we all wanted to know the camera and light settings, didn’t we! So for all those that want to know, the details were Camera: Hasselblad, Exposure: 30th at f11, 4000 watts tungsten light on Weston 64 speed film. As I said a perfectly exposed shot of Arva, but I tend to focus on the less technical side of things, as I’m a much more of a visual person 😉
Dorte posing in the bath at GHM’s flat from Kamera No.37 P11 (1961). That bath saw a lot of use and not just for bathing, as a number of models have ended up posing on or in it for Harrison Marks, including Pamela Green and Christine Carter (Tina Graham). This is the second of two shots of Dorte in the bath from Kamera No.37, the first was posted here.
