June Palmer and The Fan (Original)


Two very graceful nude shots of June Palmer taken by John W in one of the photo sessions he had with her.  These were taken in 1987 and June was 47 at the time, but her figure although more ample than her younger modelling years was just as enthralling!  I particularly like the pose of June in the top shot.

Thanks as always to John for allowing me to share these original June shots*

How Much Editing Do I Do?

Someone asked the question on how much I edit the images published on here, which doesn’t have a straightforward answer!  It depends! It depends on the size and quality of the original, but my view is that I only restore or enhance, but not alter.  Most of the time it’s restoring colour, removing blemishes and scratches and tweaking highlights and contrast and re-sizing if they are large files.  Overall, nothing that drastically alters the context of the original.

I’ll use another June Palmer shot as an example.

The original image scanned directly from a 120 film negative

 My Edit – A slight crop of the image, colours enhanced and restored & a few scratches removed and that is it!

The purists will say don’t mess with the original, but I prefer the colours in my edit!   

The image is another JP original from John W of June as Joanna Kent in strawberry blonde wig on the beach and I love it!  I think it’s the pose and June’s bum!

Safe Shoes Prevent Purlers!

Another original June Palmer bit of memorabilia from John W*.  A British Safety Council poster featuring June Palmer. This is an old fax, sent from London to New York on 12th November 1966. I wonder if any of the original faxes survived?
 
For those that don’t want neck ache, the original text on the fax read:
(WITH AMS BUDGET STORY BY EDDY GILMORE)
(NY.20-Nov.  10)–WATCH YOUR PURLEY GAIT!–The British Safety Council is mailing 20,000 factories a poster featuring pretty model June Palmer in high heeled shoes taking a tumble and the slogan: Safe Shoes Prevent Purlers. Purler is Cockney slang for falling on your rear. The Council suggests that the posters be put up on factory bulletin boards as a warning that high heels cause falls.(APWirephoto by cable from London)
(a51200pw)1966 
It seems The British Safety Council had a thing for using popular models of the time on their posters, as Dawn Grayson caused quite a stir when she appeared on a poster for eye protection.
I’m really pleased to be sharing this unique images, as I think it should be shared, but please where possible if you share elsewhere link back to this original.

Nice Dimples June!


Another original shot of JP taken by Arthur Howell, probably late 1960’s
that I’ve never seen before.*  Converted from a medium format 120 film negative and all I’ve done to the shot is tidy up some dirt on the image and tweaked the colour (originally a sepia colour).
