Continuing with the model of the week and an early shot of Pamela Green from a set of silver gelatin prints from the 1950’s. Taken in 1957 by Harrison Marks this shot shows off Pam’s great body and her short dark hair. The signature long blonde hair was to come later, but I do like the short look. A great profile shot of her face as she looks down with great lighting as usual.
A fuller length version of this shot went on to appear in the first edition of Kamera P26 (1957).
I love June Simpson and just can’t get enough of her curves and blonde ambition. This is one of my favourite shots of her that was originally published in Kamera Special No.1 P90 (1957). This is from an original print sent over by Kevin and much better quality.
I just love the way she is sat back on her heels showing off that great round arse as she slightly arches her back. A perfect blonde with a perfect body from the master.
Last shot of the week, so hope everyone is doing OK and staying safe 🙂
Another superb shot of the unknown classic beauty by Harrison Marks with a stunning figure, but this time I have a name! This model appears multiple times throughout early GHM photo sets advertised in the Harrison Marks Glamour Guide and Kamera. This stunning shot showing off her magnificent tits comes from set No.44 of the 72 Steroscopic sets of 5 prints.
Now the name associated with this busty beauty as provided by a number of people including member Billboard is Candy Bell or Belle, depending on where you search for her. So now we have name even if it’s not real for this classic beauty and thanks to all for providing it and reminding me 🙂
A stunning vintage beauty from the Carnival Annual P22 (1956) and shot by West End Photo’s, but model and photographer unknown. I just love the classic 1950’s hairstyle combined with the red lipstick, fishnet stockings and low cut bra giving us just a hint of nipple. A classic vintage glamour or cheesecake beauty, although I think the red lipstick has been ever so slightly enhanced in this shot.
The term cheesecake seems to have derived from a genre of glamour photography and poster art made popular in wartime pin-ups of the 1940’s, often featuring modest poses by movie starlets displaying lots of leg but little explicit nudity. So called because of the resemblance of a stocking-clad female thigh to the layers of a cheesecake dessert. I think this shot fits that genre perfectly.
Incidentally, this was the first ever magazine I physically purchased and scanned 🙂
The cover of the first edition of In Focus edited by Harrison Marks. In the heady days following the highly successful launch of Kamera, it seemed that the market for Harrison Marks’ publications was insatiable. ‘In Focus’ was another Kamera style pocketbook that Kamera Publications launched in 1957. The highest issue number that I have come across to date is No.21 If this is the last issue, then the publication was last printed in 1964.
No idea who the cover model is unless anyone can enlighten me? Thanks to Paul from Firebird Records for this copy and others of In Focus 🙂
