June by Michael Barrington Martin

A stunning side profile portrait of a 19-year-old June Palmer taken by Michael Barrington Martin in 1959. I have no more details, but maybe taken as part of her portfolio or just as a sitting for MBM, who knows? Stunning profile shot regardless of what it was used for.

Vivienne Warren Profile

Vivienne Warren seems to have become a nude model at the early of 16 and to have turned professional at 17. It is known for certain that she was working for Harrison Marks by the time she was 17. 

Warren became HM’s second wife in November, 1964 when she married him at the age of 18, but the marriage was a stormy one and very short lived. Even so, he described her as an extremely mature and confident young woman and visible evidence of that confidence can be seen in the skill and poise with which she posed for him.

Marie Deveraux

One of the earliest and most honoured of Harrison Mark’s models. Marie Deveraux seems to have enjoyed a short but highly successful career. According to Marks, she quit the business after getting a job as a stand in for the film and went back to America with the film crew when the shooting was complete.  She appeared in no less than 70 films during the 1950’s and 1960’s including, Brides of Dracula, The Strangers of Bombay, Carry on Cabby, The Rebel and of course as a stand in for Liz Taylor in Cleopatra, which led to her making an appearance for Playboy!

Her modelling career seems to have been very short lived and worked for HM from 1957 to 1960. Rumour has it that Marie was introduced to Harrison Marks by a struggling young actor – Michael Caine!

Pamela Green

There is no denying the obvious visual talents of the beautiful Pamela Green, one of the most popular of all the Harrison Marks models, but she was also a very talented artist. Her actual modelling career started in 1948 through a booking mistake as a figure model for the life class at St. Martin’s School of Art in London where she was a student on a three year course Fashion Drawing. At the time she only posed for the Costume and Fashion classes for which she was paid the princely sum of 4/6 (23p!) an hour.She recalls – The day of my initiation into nude work happened by accident. I was called at short notice to fill in for a class where the model had failed to show up. The master was waiting impatiently. “Hurry up and get undressed, we’re late”. This was a life class. A quick look around the room showed me that the students were unknown to me as was the master. I thought “Well, there has got to be a first time”. I undressed behind the screen, and slipping on my coat walked to the rostrum. The master took my coat, helped me up and asked me to strike a pose. I stood facing the class, legs slightly apart with my weight on one hip. I have never felt quite so naked standing in front of about 20 students. After about 15 minutes I began to relax a little, everyone was concentrating on their drawing and by the end of the class it seemed the most natural thing to do. I collected my money from the office and discovered that I was paid more; five shillings instead of 4/6. I decided to begin modelling for the life classes and joined a small band of very young models who were all posing for the necessities in life, like their next meal. I was the eldest of the group at seventeen.*1

Pamela Green first met George Harrison Marks in the summer of 1953. George was a theatrical photographer and they met in connection with Pamela’s role in Bernard Delfont’s Folies Bergere which was running at the Prince of Wales Theatre at the time.  It was Pamela who persuaded George to try his hand at nude photography. Between them, they created the famous glamour model, Rita Landre, who no-one guessed was actually Pamela in disguise. It was clear that George and Pamela were an excellent professional team. G Harrison Marks Limited was formed, George’s photographic expertise perfectly complemented by Pamela’s skilled costume and set design – a skill informed by her studies as a fine artist, at St Martin’s School of Art.*2
