Two shots of Anna Verdi posing in long white boots and stockings from Femme No.11 P4 & P5 (1968) by Harrison Marks.
As I’ve mentioned before Femme first appeared in 1958 as a 64 page 9½ in. x 7 in. magazine, but from the second issue was relaunched as ‘The New Femme No.1’ and became a 96 page pocketbook in the Kamera format. Originally only the cover was by Harrison Marks, but by the final version, No.11 in 1968 the whole thing, cover and contents was GHM work. Some of the images were also duplicates from earlier Kamera editions.
Anna Verdi is one of the few models I like with a figure that seems to suit small tits, and I particularly like the first of these two shots.
OK, I’ll openly admit that Annette Johnson isn’t one of my favourite models, but don’t ask me to explain why because I can’t really put a finger on why I don’t like her, I just don’t compared to others. Saying that the shots of her taken by Harrison Marks are some of the better ones I’ve seen of her, plus those by Ed Alexander and this shot is a good example. Taken by Harrison Marks outside Ewhurst Manor, this is one of four shots of her that appear in the hardback book ‘She Walks in Beauty’ (1964). All four shots are located in the grounds of Ewhurst, which is unusual in that nearly almost all of the photo’s in SWiB are taken on location down in Devon, apart from a small sub-set based at Ewhurst.
This shot is outside the front of Ewhurst, as you can see the driveway, but what is more bizarre about the shot, other than Annette’s pose, is the bowl of fruit on the ground in front of her! What’s that all about? It also looks like the retouchers had a field day hiding her nether region and did a poor job! Despite all of the above Annette doesn’t look too bad in the shot 🙂
A double whammy of Marie Claire showing us top and tail views of her body from Kamera No.70 P42 (1966) as she lays amongst the record covers with a gramophone in the background. A great front view of her body and equally good view of her tanned back view and white bottom.
Cindy Neal posing on the Kitchen set from Kamera No.88 P3 (1968) and looking very nice too! As the title says not your average Cindy doll, although if anyone has ever seen a Cindy the nether regions look very similar to the retouched version of this shot 🙂
A full on frontal view of Rita Landre (Pam Green) from Kamera No.19 (1959) as she looks down on you from above. In a strange erotic way it’s quite a domineering look she’s giving, as if to say look, but touch if you dare! I’d risk it 🙂 The retouching on this shot is good for a change, as the way the shadows fall and the fact Pam was shaven all help reduce the retouching required on this shot.
Ann Wilson from Solo No.44 (1965) posing in the open door of Harrison Marks white Buick, which was used in a number of shoots. This shot clearly shows the tax disc on the side window giving the date of January 1965, which always helps when trying to date a photo. Not to be distracted at peripheral stuff, Ann looks equally stunning stood in that open door nude and I’d grab a ride with her any day!
I always find it fascinating when I come across an image of a model published in Kamera and have a copy of the original to compare it with. The above two shots are a good example of Elaine Desmond published in Kamera No.51 (1963).
The first shot is the original uncensored shot of Elaine showing us everything, including her smooth fully shaven mons pubis area. The second is the same shot, but published in Kamera after the retoucher has got hold of it to get it past the censors! If we ignore the quality difference between the two shots I still know which one I prefer. Although back when this was published, something was better than nothing in terms of titillation! Two great shots of Elaine which ever version you prefer.
The second shot of June Palmer posing with a wheel by Harrison Marks that were published in Kamera No.27 (1959). Unfortunately the shots have been retouched for censorship reasons back then, but the way June poses it probably didn’t need much retouching. If the date of Publication is correct then this would put June at 19 when she had these shots taken.
As they appear in Kamera I’ve published them on this site, but they will also appear on Kamera Club for completeness.
