Rosemary – All On Display Outdoors!

Rosemary de Canonville giving us a great outdoor display of what she has to offer. Scanned from an original 10 by 8 print this shot was taken by Leslie Bainbridge and typical of his style.

It’s interesting to see the different styles and preferences of photographers back then. Roark obviously had a preference for the younger natural sun tanned models. Bainbridge opted for the fully shaven view leaving little to the imagination, but again with it’s own merits. I like both styles for different reasons, but still tend to go back to Harrison Marks and his more generic style of glamour photography. GHM tended to focus more on the shape and form of the models pose along with lighting than what the model had on offer.

Again we all enjoy differing styles, which is why I try and offer a bit of everything and as the years progressed so did glamour photography, either for the better or sometimes the worse 🙂

Rosemary’s View! (Original)

A wonderful rear view of the smooth curves of Rosemary de Canonville by Leslie Bainbridge as she kneels on a sofa. This comes from a set of images of Rosemary along with a dozen more models all taken by Bainbridge including Jackie Rigby, Vicky Ashley, Clare Dobson and others, plus a few unknowns. These type of shots usually ended up in the pages of Health & Efficiency (H&E) and Girl Illustrated, but can’t recall seeing Rosemary, but I may have missed her?

I have in excess of over 500 images of these lovely ladies by Bainbridge, so may have to have another section dedicated to the ladies of H&E?
