The Gypsy Princess (Original)

A scan of the original negative of Princess Sonmar H’Arricks (Pamela Green) posing on the ‘Gypsy Set’ that appeared in the pages of Kamera No.40 (1962). I haven’t published a PSH image for a while, so about time I did and I love this shot and the clarity compared to the same image from Kamera No.40 that I posted here back in 2014. Beautiful shot of Pam as PSH and thanks as always to Simon for sending over this original from his Pam archives 🙂

She Keeps Popping Up, But Who Is She?

Another Harrison Marks model that pops up on a regular basis through out Kamera, but I have no idea who it is! Original thoughts were Jackie Salt or Rusty Gaynor, but on closer examination the figures and dates don’t match. This shot is from Kamera No.40 (1962), but she also appears in Kamera No.29 (1960) from the same set?

The Gypsy Girl

Princess Sonmar H’Arricks (Pamela Green) posing on the ‘Gypsy Set’ from the pages of Kamera No.40 (1962). I haven’t published a PSH image for a while, so about time I did and I love this shot. Covering your body from head to foot with black boot polish must have been a nightmare, but as with everything Pamela put her hand to it was done very well. It must have been a bugger to scrub off afterwards, but I’m sure she would have got plenty of offers of help 🙂

Avra Bennett – To Ride A Cock Horse

Avra Bennett sat astride a beautiful white horse from the pages of Kamera No.40 (1962). Avra appeared in Solo No.18, Kamera No.33, No.34, No.37, No.40, No.52 & No.66. She also appeared in the early glamour films ‘The Strip’ (Part 1 ) and ‘The Strip’ (Part 2), ‘After the Show’ and ‘Models Mechanics’ with Paula Page. She also appears in an outdoor set of photo’s with Paula, of which a couple appear in Kamera No.40.

The title is a reference to the nursery rhyme “Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross”, which also happens to be my home town.  The full rhyme (should you care) is:

Ride a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady upon a white horse;
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
And she shall have music wherever she goes.


Jackie Parker – Kamera No.40

I’ve been staring at this images for weeks (apart from the obvious reasons to stare!) as the model looked so familiar, but I couldn’t put a name to the face and figure! Then yesterday whilst editing the Lorraine Burnett and JP set it came to me … It’s Jackie Parker!  

Now I’ve seen several sets where she has posed with Lorraine Burnett, but I didn’t know until now that she had actually posed for GHM and appeared in Kamera?  This is one of two shots of her that appear in Kamera No.40 (1962), but did she appear in any others? I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that she posed for GHM, as the models of that time seemed to have done the rounds with all the popular photographers.  What does surprise me is that there is no reference to her as modelling for GHM, but if these are the only two images he published then like me she may have been missed!
