Why would Bunny Yeager, my favorite Bettie Page photographer reject this photograph of Jungle Girl up a tree? She had BETTER ones! An original contact print, "edited out" by Bunny Yeager, but it remains a little treasure today. Signed by Ms. Yeager on the reverse. The orange grease pen provides a reminder that an artist was behind the camera as well, and while Bettie had the look Bunny had the eye.
NOTES: Original photograph of Bettie Page circa 1955 Signed by Bunny Yeager on Reverse Contact Print collection Jim Linderman. More information on the Jungle Girl series is HERE on an earlier post. Layout below taken from eBay…unknown source, sorry.
