Sunny Days Ahead! (Original)

Well let’s hope the sun arrives soon, as could do with a few more views like this! An unknown model posing with a colourful umbrella from a restored 1950’s Kodachrome colour slide. Fabulous colours and clarity from such an old slide.

Could It Be Danielle?

I love a good mystery normally, but sometimes recognising the face (and body) of a model, but not remembering her name can be frustrating! This model is one example, as I’ve published one of my own negatives by Harrison Marks here before, but was unable to name her. Now I’ve been sent a full set of the same model posing and stripping with a bamboo ladder, but again it was driving me made as to who she was!

Well by chance today I was looking back through my video’s and noticed this post of ‘Brides in The Bath – Part 2’ and damn me, but there she is in the image and video (2:47) as a can-can girl! Then coincidence number two, I was looking through a copy of Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.2 and came across these shots of Danielle Denese. Bugger me it seems to be the same model in all of them, so have I identified her as Danielle Denese? My track record of identifying models isn’t bad, but I would say this is one of those 50/50 shots, as the hair, body and facial features match, but I have very few named images of Danielle to actually reference.

I’m going with them all being the same model and it being the model named as ‘Danielle Denese’ by Harrison Marks, because there’s no guarantee that’s her name or she didn’t model under another name? So one more off the unknown list unless anyone can prove otherwise 🙂


Jean Belvin – A Highlighted Profile (Original)

A restored silver gelatin photo of Jean Belvin giving us a great profile side shot of her face and classic 1950’s hairstyle as she sits and poses nude for the camera. I don’t think the image has been retouched and looking closely I believe she was smooth down below, but the curve of her inner thigh looks odd? Probably just the way she was sat and it takes nothing away from the rest of shot of Jean.

Pamela Green – An Exposed Countryside View! (1950’s)

A restored image of a red-headed Pamela Green from a colour Pamar 35mm slide taken by Harrison Marks in the 1950’s and sent over by Paul from Firebird Records. The original had the common red/orange hue to it, but after a bit of tweaking it came out better than expected, apart from the slightly over exposed highlights on Pam’s chest and lower region. But then Pam is exposing pretty much everything in this shot countryside view anyway!
