June by Michael Barrington Martin

A stunning side profile portrait of a 19-year-old June Palmer taken by Michael Barrington Martin in 1959. I have no more details, but maybe taken as part of her portfolio or just as a sitting for MBM, who knows? Stunning profile shot regardless of what it was used for.
