The Fabulous Franni Leigh! (Original)

Another shot by Terry Sparks from my collection of his contact sheets and this time featuring Franni Leigh, who has already appeared on this site several times before here. This comes from a set of photos taken by Terry in August 1972 and the two previous colour shots on the bed are from this same set. Compared to my other posts and other shots I have seen this is very tame, but at the same time a very good shot of her, with you being able to see her small pert tits through that tight top.

As already explained Franni wasn’t her real name and beneath that wig she was actually fashion model Polly Eltes, who worked for the likes of David Bailey and others, with this being one of her few full nude modelling assignments. She also had brief careers as a British actress and singer, but today she has come full circle and has become a successful photographer behind the camera working for interiors and lifestyle magazines. Thanks as always to Terry for the fabulous insights into his time behind the camera with these models.

It’s also my last post before my week away, so there will be no further updates until I return. Thank you to everyone for the comments and emails showing support to the site after my moan about my images being used elsewhere as it’s really appreciated. I’ll take the time away to decide what to do next, but I’m sure I’ll be back after my break and will continue posting in some format, as it would be a shame to hide away all the 1000’s of images I now have in my archive because of a few selfish people!

Enjoy Franni and see you all soon 🙂

Agnes Grieves by Terry Sparks (Original)

A beautiful shot of ebony model Agnes Grieves taken by Terry Sparks. Not a model I was aware of until coming across this set of contact sheets of her by Terry, but she does remind me of another ebony model that also posed for Terry, Sylvia Bayo.

I have 9 contact sheets featuring Agnes by Terry with over 140 images of her posing in various locations around a house including bedroom, living room and some full nude shots in the bath. I have no idea where these were taken but Terry has commented that they were taken on 21st September 1971.

As an aside I recently acquired a further 8 sets of contact sheets of other models taken by Terry Sparks, so more new models to come including some fantastic sets of Terry Graham and Franni Leigh 🙂

Clyda Rosen – A Break From Action! (Original)

A film still taken on the set of the Harrison Marks film ‘Dolly Mixture’ of Clyda Rosen and ‘Short Jack Gold’ relaxing between shoots! Both looking very happy and relaxed before the action starts again 🙂

An Underexposed Clyda! (1973)

Clyda Rosen on the cover of Fiesta Vol.7 No.9 (Sept 1973) looking rather demur and underexposed! I suppose we are used to seeing rather more of Cylda than we do in this shot, as even her large tits are partially covered and she’s kept her knickers on for now. I suppose it is the cover of Fiesta and there is only so far you can go on a fairly mainstream top shelf mens magazine in the 70’s 🙂
