Pamela Green – Desiree, Study From Life (Original)

Pamela Green posing on what appears to be a photo from a late 1950’s. Well actually it’s not a photo as such, but is mounted on card with a die cut surround. The surface of the photo has been coated and has a textured surface to make it look like an oil painting, but that doesn’t show on this image. It also has a ribbon attached to the top for hanging and was obviously meant for a calendar? The image measures 9½”x 6½” and presumably published by Bemrose of Derby.

It also has a signature of the photographer on it in the bottom right and that looks to be Joan Craven, which would make sense as she took many pictures of a young Pamela Green in her early days and I think this is a rather nice shot!

What The Photographer Saw – Pamela Green (1952)

On Monday I published a single image of Pamela Green and a Soldier by Zoltan Glass, which was followed up with the full article from Lilliput Magazine in December 1952 from Simon.  Anyone that looked through the full article will have noticed a reference to Pamela appearing in an earlier edition of Lilliput that same year.

I now have that earlier article and the six images of Pamela by six different photographers of the time.  The photographers included Roger Wood, Alan Duncan, Philip Gotlop, Philip Boucas, Angus McBean and my particular favourite of the lot Joan Craven.  The article appeared in Liiliput Magazine, September – October 1952 and I’ve included the cover for completeness. Thanks as ever to Simon for the scans from his collection!
