Sylvana Manto By Philip Gotlop (Original)

Another shot from the collection of original Philip Gotlop prints sent over by Paul from Firebird Records, but this time the model is recognisable, especially if you follow this site. The model so beautifully highlighted by the light and shadows is non other than Sylvana Manto (Madelaine Bannister). A stunning shot of her by Philip and I do wonder why his early glamour work has gone mostly unnoticed or avoided rather than his more popular work? Maybe as he became more popular he didn’t want to be associated with this side of his photography, but we all have to start somewhere!

Figure Photography by Philip Gotlop (1950’s)

Thanks to Paul from Firebird London I have a growing collection of nude studies by Philip Gotlop. British photographer Philip Gotlop started writing photography manuals in the 1940’s and 50’s. His titles included professional manuals, practical guides and studies on nude photography and the female figure. But it his work later in his career he is probably more well known for, as in the 1960’s his lens was more often pointed at the era’s entertainers, such as The Beatles, Cilla Black, Cliff Richard, Neil Sedaka, Johnny Cash, The Moody Blues, The Kinks, David Essex, Liberace and TV personalities such as David Frost and many others.

This collection is of over 250 prints of Gotlop’s nude studies  and vary in size from 8½”x 6½” up to 10″x 8″ or larger. Many of the models are unknown, but all are shot in very classical nude poses, with the odd unconventional shot! I thought i’d share a few here to as they are very classical and see if people enjoy them?

Sunny Days Ahead! (Original)

Well let’s hope the sun arrives soon, as could do with a few more views like this! An unknown model posing with a colourful umbrella from a restored 1950’s Kodachrome colour slide. Fabulous colours and clarity from such an old slide.

Tan Lines, Tits & Bush!

It’s throwback Saturday and a few images from my collection I wouldn’t normally publish, but I like them anyway! I love how the tan lines show off the small perky tits and lush bush of this model and such a great smile, if you look up that far 🙂

Monika Ringwald – Fence Top Flashing & Fishnets!

I love this shot of an unknown model from the 1960’s Monika Ringwald as it’s one of those shots that has a bit of everything and pushes all the right buttons! I love the fact she is sat astride the fence in fishnets and white panties. Throw in the perfectly small white tits caused by the suntan and it’s a great shot!

Update: Originally I had no clue who this model was and found the original negative being sold on eBay.com and assumed it originated from the states. How wrong I was, as the image was taken by Terry Sparks and the model was Monika Ringwald and thanks to Terry the location was actually one he used many times before, Pegwell Bay down in Kent. Here is what Terry had to say when he saw this image – The picture you published is I think one of mine. I was commissioned by an American to do a stockings set of Monika and all the unprocessed films were given directly to him. So I have never seen the results of my efforts and I am rather curious as to how they have suddenly materialised after all these years.

Well there you go, it’s a small world! I now have several other images of Monika and those great little white tits, sent over by Terry that you can see here.

Which Pocket Next? (Original)

An original image of a familiar but unknown Harrison Marks model posing suggestively on a snooker table! With her tits popping out of her bra and trousers and panties pulled down to reveal her very nice bum and the look on her face, it’s a very suggestive photo indeed! All sorts of titles spring to mind about cue’s, pockets and balls, like ‘Where do you want to plant your balls next?’ and so on 🙂

I have another equally suggestive shot from this set on this table as well, but still can’t name the model? I’ve also seen this snooker table used many times before by GHM with other models.

An Unknown Handful! (Original)

This shot has been annoying me since Girlymag sent it over wondering if I could identify the model. It’s a fantastic shot of a model I’m sure I recognise and the quality of the print itself is very crisp and clear, but god it’s annoying me that I recognise her, but can’t name her! I’m convinced she’s been in QT or similar publication, but I’ve looked through all my collection and I’m damned if I can find her. Somebody put me out of my misery and name her, please!

Update: Thanks to member djacks who has identified her as Diane Watson 🙂

Unknown Beauty in Pearls (1950’s)

A stunning shot of a 1950’s beauty posing in a living room in just her matching pearl earrings and necklace, with just black high heels on. A very classy, but for some reason sexy shot and as you can see there is a theme to today’s posts! Thanks to Oxxbridge Galleries I have a set of 9 prints of this beauty posing in her pearls and it must have been at Christmas as one shot is of her like this next to a Christmas tree!

A very classic 1950’s hairstyle as well, but love her whole look and figure, all enhanced by the pearls and is it me or does she resemble Lucille Ball a little bit?

Update: Thanks to Phil who has potentially identified this model as Geri/Jeri Archer who was a model and actress in the 50’s and 60’s and appeared on The Phil Silvers show (Sgt Bilko). I don’t think we are 100% convinced this is her, more like 50/50, but the nose and stature are similar?
