Marie Provost – The Best of Kamera Vol.2 Cover

One of the few missing covers from my collection of Kamera magazine covers and thanks to Yak from the Official Pamela Green site for providing the scan. The cover features Marie Provost or as I’ve seen her named somewhere else recently Tina Sherwood, but not been able to verify that name yet! And would you believe it but shortly after getting a copy of the cover a copy of the actual magazine appears on eBay, typical!

June Wilkinson by Harrison Marks (1958)

One of the few appearances of June Wilkinson in Kamera, this one being the only shot of her to appear in Kamera Special No.2 (1958). June also appeared in Kamera No.5 (1 shot) and No.8 (1 shot) along with several shots of her appearing in one of GHM’s other publications ‘In Focus’. They may be scarce but still a worth addition to the GHM portfolio.

June Palmer in Artemis & Aktaion (Video)

Time for another video clip featuring June and this time a never before seen original made by John W himself! Shot in 1985 Artemis & Aktaion is a 9 minute short film that represents a Greek story based around a red vase and basically features June in a red robe stripping and then rubbing oil all over her naked body, need I say more! Enjoy the clip as it’s a unique view of June on film later in her private modelling career.

Now you’ve enjoyed the clip for some more details about the shoot from John.

‘I tried to make it as representing a Greek red-figure vase. The meteor scene and the transformation into a stag were particularly unsuccessful and I re-shot them on video when I had the film digitized. It was quite difficult to get cloth of the right earthy-red colour. I eventually got it from Liberty’s in London. It was intended as lining for coats and was quite scratchy. I apologised to June about this, but she said she has had worse next to her skin. I made the shoulder brooches, which were decorated with palmettes as sort of visual pun, but they didn’t come out on the film. The running stag and jumping sheep sequences were taken from Edward Muybridge’s – Animal Locomotion’.

A fantastic clip of June that I keep revisiting and watching for some reason 🙂 and a big thank you to John for allowing me to share his own films of June, of which there is one more to come.

June by Stefan Glass (Coloured)

A wonderfully coloured version of June posing with grapes by Stefan Glass and coloured by Oldiznewagain. I love the use of the orange colour as the background wallpaper and it is a good contrast to the green and purple grapes.
