The unmistakable Pamela Green from a set of restored silver gelatin photos taken by Harrison Marks in 1955. Taken in the studio they show Pam during her short dark hair period in different poses showing off her oiled naked body wearing nothing more than a pair of hooped earrings. 1950’s glamour photography at it’s best 🙂

A shot of Pamela Green looking very chic in a shot from a set of her wearing black pants, scarf around her neck and a tucked in blouse from 1955. This shot comes from an original silver gelatin photograph, but the same shot also appears on page 50 in ‘Pamela A Portrait in Studies’ by Harrison Marks also published in 1955.
Pamela Green with short dark hair looking more tanned than usual or slightly ‘blacked up’ for this shot. Taken from an original Harrison Marks silver gelatin photo this set features Pam nude with hooped earrings and posing with what looks like a glass orb or ball. Although this shot itself didn’t appear, others from the same set were published in the hardback book ‘Pamela – A Portrait in 58 Studies’ by Harrison Marks in 1955.
The cover of the hardback book ‘Pamela’ by Harrison Marks. A wonderful study and book containing images solely of Pamela Green from 1955. All the images show Pam with short dark hair or the first early pictures of her wearing the red wig as Rita Landre.
The book itself contains 66 pages broken down into 3 different chapters, each containing a different set of Pam photographs. ‘By The Shore’ shows images of both Pam and Rita posing at various locations on the beach and in the sea. ‘Studio Nudes’ is self explanatory, it shows Pam posing nude in various poses within the studio, so much more formal full length poses. Finally there is ‘Art of Glamour’ where she poses in various costumes as herself and Rita, including some imaginative uses of a chequered shawl and white mink shawl/coat.
A wonderful book for any collector of GHM or Pamela and thanks to Yak from the official Pamela Green site for sending me a copy 🙂
