Pamela Green (August 1, 1940 – May 7, 2010), She was reckoned the most beautiful nude model of her day. In the 1950's there was scarcely a barrack-room locker, mess deck or grimy garage workshop unadorned by one of the thousands of cheesecake pictures of her, topless and often stark naked, her hourglass figure inspiring the accolade "Queen of Curves".
For "glamour" shots, she would model under her own name, or as one of her two alter egos – a flame-haired nightclub singer named Rita Landré, or the dusky Princess Sonmar, for which she applied Max Factor's Pancake Negro, boot polish and baby oil. Director, Michael Powell, had spotted Pamela Green in the pages of Kamera, a discreet little publication launched in 1957 by George Harrison Marks and Pamela.
Kamera was launched in 1957. It was a pocket-sized monthly publication. The models featured were hand-picked by George and Pamela, who had the uncanny knack of selecting just the right girls. Some of these girls – June Palmer, Paula Page, Lorraine Burnett, Vicky Kennedy, Marie Devereaux and Rosa Dolmai – were to become celebrities in their own right.
George’s photographic mastery and Pamela’s creative skills led to Kamera changing the face of glamour photography. They seemed to have a natural ability to capture the spirit of the age and, to some extent, guide it. Kamera, though titillating, was imbued with dignity and beauty. Sales of the Kamera calendars were phenomenal. George’s fascination with theatre and cinema gave the photos a dramatic and live quality which set them apart from other contemporary glamour imagery.
