As we kick off a new month I thought I’d start it with the April page of the 1965 Kamera Calendar. Featuring a very good shot of Annette Johnson posing crossed legged on the floor of GHM’s flat. Not sure what’s going on in this shot, but she’s looking very longingly at that fruit bowl and pineapple 🙂
A scan from an original 35mm colour slide in my collection of Toni Austin. Not a model I’d come across before, but liked the image so bought the slide. The red curtain background is used again and I love the lighting and shadows across Toni’s body in the shot. Toni has a great figure, especially that smooth raised mound fully on show. Another model with rather a pronounced scar down one side, probably from an appendectomy from it’s position?
The slide itself was a Kodachrome transparency and No.22 of the set and dated October 1965. Unfortunately this was the only one I managed to get from the set 🙁
Gwen Ford posing on the bed in the flat of Harrison Marks from an original negative scan. Gwen appears twice in the 1965 Kamera Special No.5, both shots of her posing in GHM’s flat on a bed as above, but I can’t find any shots of her in Kamera around 1965, but I do have some gaps. GHM’s love of cats makes an appearance again with the ceramic cats on the shelf in the background.
The magnificent Dawn Grayson at her best by Harrison Marks. A simple pose from Dawn on the sofa at GHM’s flat, but sometimes it’s the simple things that appeal the most and this certainly does that. Harrison Marks used Dawn on many occasions on many different shoots and sets but this shot and this set has to be my favourite from them both. Many of the shots from this set went on to appear in Solo No.43 (1964) and this shot also appeared on a poster for ‘Key Strip’ here.
This shot also appeared in Kamera No.65 P19 (1965) pretty much cropped as you see it here, except this is direct from the negative in my collection. Simply Dawn at her best 🙂
