It must be my week for nice surprises, as I was contacted last night by none other than the fabulous Jean Sporle, who came across my site and contacted me. Jean is now 83 and blessed with good health and still going strong, which is fantastic to hear and still does the odd bit of fashion modeling, Wow!
Jean like myself is also keen on knowing if some of the great models back then are still around, hence looking through the site. I’ve passed on the models I know are still around and it’s great to hear that Jean is going strong and loving the times she had back with Harrison Marks and Pamela Green.
Above is a stunning shot of Jean reclining nude on a sofa and highlighted by the natural light from a window above. This is from a restored Pamar slide and taken back in the late 50’s by Harrison Marks at his flat he shared with Pam in Hampstead. A stunning shot of a fabulous lady and so glad she made contact 🙂
Tina Graham (Christine Carter) by Harrison Marks on the bedroom set and featured in Nouvelle Serie De Revue magazine. A beautiful smooth uncensored view that only got seen in the continental magazines such as this. The second shot is from the same series but an original shot of Christine directly from a scanned Pamar colour 35mm colour slide send over by Kevin, but as you can see the colours in both are nearly the same after I’ve restored them 🙂
The beautiful Jane Matthews taken by Harrison Marks in the studio from a restored 35mm Pamar colour slide. I have several black and white medium format negatives of Jane by GHM from the same shoot, but this is the only colour version so far. A great shadowy shot of Jane and love the prints of Lorraine Burnett and the cat in the background 🙂
A ‘Non Blonde’ image of Pamela Green posing in long dark wig and scarf using a towel to hide anything too sensitive. Taken on a beach on the Isles of Scilly in 1958 and produced as part of a Pamar 35mm colour slide set, most of these shots ended up in the Kamera on Location book, but as black and white. The reproduction and restoration of colours on this slide is one of the best I’ve seen and comes from my own collection of Pamar slides.
The pose of Pam here actually makes it look likes she doing some sort of exercise workout, although I’m sure it’s just one of those ‘artistic’ poses Harrison Marks used to make her get into 🙂
June Simpson from a scan of an original Pamar colour slide. Another Harrison Marks shot from this studio set of June, but this has great use of shadows to give June’s back and bottom great shape and contrast. Love June in this set and her arse 🙂
