Elaine Desmond – A Saucy Seaweed View (1964)

Elaine Desmond posing on some rocks on Bedruthan beach in nothing more than her pigtails. This shot appears in Kamera Special No.4 (1964) with Elaine looking rather coy as she balances precariously on that seaweed cover rock!

A Quick Dip With Gill (Original)

Gill Evans having a quick dip in a rock pool down at the beach in 1966. Taken by Harrison Marks in the summer of 1966 on his two week trip with his models to Bedruthan in Cornwall for images that would later to appear in Kamera on Location 66 and several Solo editions featuring his popular models. Gill was a model from the second week of the trip and seemed to enjoy being in the water, or so it seems as she is photographed in the sea, rock pools and a river in various shots throughout Kamera on Location 66.

Gill had a cracking figure as shown in this side profile shot and incidentally this is from one of my first negative purchases and scans from a few years ago.

A Riverside Robin (Original)

The beautiful Robin (Alicen Warden) posing at the river edge from an original colour negative taken by Harrison Marks. I have quite a collection of negatives now of Robin, with nearly all of them taken on location down in Devon in 1966. This river and location were used no end of times in shots, but I have no idea as to which river it was, but it will have been somewhere near Bedruthen in North Cornwall where they were based for two weeks.  Robin was the name that GHM gave Alicen, but no idea as to why that name was used, but she accompanied GHM and the team for the 1st week in May 1966.

I love her pose in this shot along with the pigtails, but that water sure doesn’t look very warm to me! More of Robin on location here.

Elaine Desmond – Pigtails & Rude Rocks! (Original)

A colour shot of Elaine Desmond posing in a rock pool on Bedruthen beach in nothing more than her pigtails. Another appearance of the familiar rock formation in the background, that has appeared in numerous shots of different models.  As someone has noted this particular rock has a very phallic look to it, so probably used by GHM on purpose!
