June Palmer – Doorway Delight (Original)

Yet another simple but stunning shot of a nude June Palmer posing in a doorway for Stefan Glass.  This shot is part of the huge Stefan Glass Set, but is a smaller sub set of shots of June posing in this doorway and on the stairs! It’s also another slightly cropped version, but I’ve only removed some of the side to this shot so you can focus on the main subject, June’s young naked body in the doorway!

Barnyard Beauty Gill Evans (1967)

Gill Evans from a scan of an original negative with the slightly censored version of the same shot appearing in Kamera No.81 P37 (1967). Gill Evans was already a well known and popular model in other UK & US based publications when Harrison Marks offered her a place on his annual Cornwall shoot in 1966. All of the photos from the shoot that he published were reproduced in Kamera on Location ’66. He also did a studio shoot of her and fifteen of these photos were published in Kamera No.81 including the front cover and the shot above.

A stunning beauty not used enough by GHM in my humble opinion 🙂

Maria Clarence Laid Bare! (Original)

Maria Clarence beautiful and bare from an original negative scan, with the published retouched version of this shot appearing in Kamera No.46 P15 (1962). Her first appearance was in Kamera No.45 (1962) and further photos were published in issues No.46, 47, 48, 50, 55, 56, 60, 61, 66 & No.75. She also appeared in Kamera Special No.3 and six pages in the hardback book ‘She Walks in Beauty’. Maria was chosen for the 1962 Cornwall location shoot and a total of nearly eighty photographs of Maria were published including duos taken with Margaret Nolan and Jane Mathews. There are two known sets of 35mm Colour Slides of Maria, No’s 24 and No.32 with Margaret Nolan from the Cornwall shoot.

A beauty and bare shot of Maria in the studio, but those hairy arms are evident again, but not a lot of hair anywhere else!

A Perfectly Exposed Avra Bennett (1961)

Avra Bennett perfectly exposed in the studio by Harrison Marks. This uncensored version comes directly from the negative, but it was also published in Kamera No.37 P9 (1961) in it’s slightly censored version, not that you could tell as you can hardly see anything controversial in this shot!

The photo published in Kamera was also one of the pages that also included the camera and lighting settings for the shot, because let’s not forget Kamera was a study of photography through the female form and we all wanted to know the camera and light settings, didn’t we! So for all those that want to know, the details were Camera: Hasselblad, Exposure: 30th at f11, 4000 watts tungsten light on Weston 64 speed film. As I said a perfectly exposed shot of Arva, but I tend to focus on the less technical side of things, as I’m a much more of a visual person 😉

Gloria Lomax- Open & Glorious! (Original)

Beneath the blonde wig and gloriously naked and exposed is none other than Gloria Lomax from a restored 10 by 8 print published by Russell Gay. Kneeling beside the armchair with all her charms on show, this is the second shot from this set of Gloria, the first one here. I love this set but alas only have the two shots, but always on the hunt for more 🙂
