Photographers of Bettie Mae Page A Delightful Detailed Documentation and Database Discovery
The good folks at Bettiemaepage.com have mentioned my new book and done a very nice profile of the photographer Rudolph Rossi. The site has by far the most comprehensive database of known information on the photographs, photographers and work of Bettie Page. It also, like the book, includes other models who challenged convention and posed for both pin-ups and private photographers in the same time period...The same quasi-legal world depicted and described in Camera Club Girls: Bettie Page, her Friends and the work of Rudolph Rossi. Bettiemaepage.com is also a subscription site, but not really...it is probably the most generous and interesting Adult website you will find. Unlike the endless adult sites which drive internet traffic, it has genuine and proper enthusiasm for the topic, as well as solid, serious research behind the photos and the photographers. As these early fashion, fetish and erotic photographers become better known and appreciated, sites as detailed and comprehensive as this will be essential. It fights for attention among a million-plus bandwidth clogging porno sites, but it is FAR from that. Trust that Irving Klaw was not the only photographer Bettie Page posed for. Weegee, Klaw and Bunny Yeager (who I profiled recently HERE) are well known, but the site lists a dozen other photographers who worked with the model and shows a huge amount of their work. Some, such as Paul Knaut, a viewmaster photographer, had public careers, others, such as the anonymous "The Doctor" and "The Pennsylvanian" are completely unknown. In addition, the site documents many other prominent erotic photographers from the 1920's to date, including Hank Casper, a 3-D slide photographer, John Everhard, Grundworth, Albert Arthur Allen...it goes on and on. A visit to their SITE is highly recommended for ADULTS and adult
