Rearview – Bertram Park

An interesting behind the scenes rearview shot of Pamela Green by Bertram Park (1883-1972). I’m afraid I don’t know for sure who the model on the right is. The image was most probably taken in the rose garden of his home in Pinner. This image is from a group of prints by Bertram Park, who along with his wife, Yvonne Gregory, produced a number of early books on nude photography during the 1930s. The prints came from an estate sale of their business partner, Marcus Adams. This appears to be a studio reference print, originally mounted ten to a page, with each image numbered.
