This has to be one of my favourite portraits of Pamela Green. It is by Bertram Park, a highly regarded establishment photographer whose body of work encompassed not just figure studies, but still lives and society portraits as well. His reputation was such that various European crowned heads would visit his studio to be photographed, including the British Royal Family. In 1910 he became a founder member of the London Salon of Photography. He married the photographer Yvonne Gregory in 1916. With her, in 1919, he set up a studio at 43 Dover Street, London. He exhibited as part of the European avant-garde movement in the Premier Salon International de Nu Photographique which took place in Paris in 1933 in the company of Man Ray, Moholy-Nagy, and others. It was a landmark show of the last century whose importance can not be underestimated. Bertram Park photographed Pamela Green several times, including at his home in Pinner, whose extensive grounds he used as a setting for outdoor nudes. Bertram Park was also an authority on roses. Apparently he had had some three thousand specimens in his garden.
