Sophie Dawn – Among The Mussels! (Original)

An original shot of Sophia Dawn by Harrison Marks posing amongst the rocks and mussels down on Bedruthan beach in Cornwall. This shot was probably taken around 1964 and several shots of Sophia on the beach went on to appear in GHM’s hardback book ‘She Walks in Beauty’

Pamela Green – A Parting of the Waves! (Original)

Well something is parted that’s for sure! Pamela Green showing off more than normal by Harrison Marks and posing on his boat the Pyewacket in the early 1960’s probably down on the Thames near Maidenhead where it was moored? A shot straight from the negative showing an uncensored and fairly unusual view of Pamela in the fact she has hair down below! Pamela tended to keeps things smooth down there as it was easier when it came to retouching and sunbathing in the nude, so this was a rare sight early on in her career. Later on she tended to let it grow though.

Also don’t you just love the curves of her figure in this shot especially the curve of those hips obviously emphasized more by the way she has her legs spread 😉

Tina Graham – An Angelic Pose! (Original)

Tina Graham AKA Christine Carter posing for Harrison Marks in the studio with what looks to be a cherub statue of sorts. Shots from this set appeared in Kamera No.46, No.47 and in the 1963 Kamera Calendar. Tina who’s real name was Christine Williams did several sets for GHM, this set, a set posing on the beach and a set in the bedroom and posing in the mirrored bathroom. A very popular and versatile model used not just by GHM but Russell Gay, her boyfriend at the time and Ed Alexander across many publications.

Monique – Anything Good to Watch? (Original)

A great rear view of Monique Devereux’s rear as she poses for Harrison Marks in front of the TV in his flat. I sometimes think I prefer her rear view to the front, as it is a nice arse! Great shot from GHM in his flat and the ceramic cats make an appearance on the top of the TV and a great shot of Maggie Nolan on the wall in the background. I have several shots of Margret posing like that in the forest, but don’t think I have that one?

A great shot of Monique to kick off my return from Holiday all refreshed and ready to go again, so normal service has resumed 🙂

Maya Zell (Original)

Maya Zell by Harrison Marks posing on the bed in stockings. Another model that appeared later in Harrison Marks career and she featured in his third feature film ‘Nine Ages of Nakedness’ (1969). It appears as if she only did one still photo shoot and this was in the unidentified bedroom or, perhaps, bedroom set, shown above. I’ve checked my Kamera editions towards the end and cannot find her in any? So maybe she didn’t get published, but I do know she also worked with Terry Sparks on a film called the Hell Fire Club, so maybe only did limited work?

It’s Nearly Time!

Time for what you may ask? Well unless you live under a rock there’s an important football match tonight for us English 🙂 With a solid performance and a strong wind we could get to the first World Cup final since 1966. At time of Bobby Charlton, Alf Ramsey and of course the swinging sixties, Soho and Harrison Marks.

What’s that got to do with this image of Celia Flam, not a lot really apart from the clock as a time reference, but hey like I need an excuse.

Fingers crossed for tonight 🙂

Lorraine Burnett – A Blonde at Bedtime! (Original)

A very classical pose from Lorraine Burnett with short blonde hair posing nude kneeling on the bed by Harrison Marks and from this set. Many of these shots of Lorraine with short blonde hair posing on the bed and in the dressing room were published in Kamera No.39 (1961) but I haven’t seen this shot used in that edition. It does however appear on the cover and inside pages of the later published magazine ‘Just Lorraine Burnette’ produced by Nostalgic Publications in the late 1990’s, which you can see below.
