A different small set of images from my collection of negatives I randomly bought! Caroline Coon in bed with the master himself, on the job so to speak! Even back then hidden cameras were used to capture initiate moments and these 3 shots seem to be candid, until Caroline sees the camera in the final shot.
Reading through the many articles and images from the old Harrison Marks website I came across some outtakes and commentary of the two weeks GHM and his team spent in Cornwall in 1966 with several models. The following is an excerpt from week 2.
‘Those of you that have read about Harrison Marks on the website, will know that two of the members of his crew, Tony and David, had a reputation for, sometimes elaborate, practicle jokes. A hidden camera with a remote shutter cable wouldn’t have been a problem for them and catching George on film in private moments was not difficult as you see’
Although I have no doubt these shots were one of those occasions, a couple of things I noticed. Caroline Coon as far as I’m aware never went on the two weeks to Cornwall in 1966. If she did she was one of the unnamed models, but then there are no images of her on location? Secondly I have several shots of Caroline including this shot featuring the same location and bed. So maybe not on location, but another time and location or even a set.
What we do see, is the master on the job in more than one way, enjoying himself with Caroline. Even when she notices the hidden camera she is laughing and pointing. So the joke seems to have been taken in a good way. Doubt it would have had the same reaction today!
A wistful looking Caroline Coon leaning on the bedstead by Harrison Marks. This comes from a beautiful set of Caroline posing in and around this bed including some with GHM on top of her! I love the pose and look of Caroline in this shot rather than seeing much of her body 🙂
It wouldn’t be the run up to Christmas without a few shots from the 1967 Kamera Winter Special. A doorway special as well with Mary Stephen (Caroline Coon) posing in a open long dressing gown exposing her tits to the winter elements. A fuller version of this shot appeared on page 11 of the Winter special, but I prefer the closer crop.
These winter shots are also very forgiving during editing as well. All that fake snow hides a multitude of sins when it comes to marks and scratches, so less for me to do 🙂
Caroline Coon as Mary Stephan (Blonde wig) in the uncensored version of a shot originally published in the Kamera Winter Special (1966). This version, which I prefer was actually published in Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.2 P42 (1969).
I’d like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year. I’d also like thank all of you that have supported the site and me over the last year, with feedback, comments and new content, as it’s always appreciated and what makes the site what it is and keeps me wanting to come back and do more and more.
Sorry, I copped out of the letter i for the calendar, but decided to create this years Christmas card instead. The card features one of my original images of Caroline Coon under the alias Mary Stephan posing on the Festive/Winter set, so very apt and if you look very closely in the shadow of the present you can just see a hint of bush! Most of the shots on this set went on to appear in the Kamera Winter Special (1967), but this one doesn’t, so was either unpublished or more likely appeared in a normal edition of Kamera I’ve missed!
Thanks and I hope you enjoy the Christmas break with your families and friends 🙂
