Another photo from my own collection of Dawn Grayson images that I’ve collected over the years and this must go down as one of my favourite sets of Dawn with her clothes on! Scanned from a medium format colour negative, Dawn is wearing her familiar blue and white bikini that she wears in many other shots. But what really attracts me to the shot is the beautiful look on her face and that flowing red hair and the use of the lighting to highlight it. I’m a sucker for a redhead and even more so if it’s Dawn!
Dawn Grayson on the cover of Spick & Span Extra No.44 (Autumn 1972) and there’s something extremely sexy about this look! I think it’s the combination of white suspender belt and stockings worn underneath those blue striped pants! The top half of Dawn looks quite normal in a nice green jumper, but her look and the view below is very seductive. Unfortunately I only have the cover so don’t know if any other pics from this set of Dawn were inside?
I’ve been updating my Dawn collection including magazine covers that she appeared on and I’ve also updated her gallery of magazine covers here, with some larger images of covers I already had, plus a few new ones!
Rusty Gaynor from Kamera No.51 P12 (1963), although this is a scan from the original negative rather than directly from the magazine, but it’s been cropped to a very similar style as it appeared in print. A beautiful shot of Rusty posing on a sheepskin rug in the studio taken by Harrison Marks and I love the roundness and curve of her hip in this shot, although I’m still convinced she’s had a boob job, as they just look too round and upright?
Another exquisite shot of Pamela Green as Rita Landre taken by Harrison Marks in the living room of his Gerard Street flat. This shot is also another of those rarer uncensored shots of Pamela with her shaved pubic area just on display. A wider version but censored of this shot appeared in Solo No.13 P29 (1959) which was dedicated to images of Rita Landre. As always a beautiful shot of Pam/Rita and it always amazes me how realistic the wig looked on her, so much so for ages I thought it was real!
As some may know GHM was a cat lover and one of his many ceramic cats can be seen in the corner of this shot.
Tina Madison from a restored 6 x 4 print, that I had seen before but the clarity and colours in this copy are superb! It’s also a very nice shot of Tina to be fair and I have several others of her from the same set. I normally crop off the border, but I’ve just left the print as is this time and just restored the colour and removed the odd speck of dust. So borders on or off?
Thanks to John from Oxxbridge Galleries for this and a huge collection of fabulous colour prints, some of which I’ve never seen before. More to come soon 🙂
