Original 35mm slide features Ginger Miller taken by Bob Guccione in 1988. Provenance: The Estate of Bob Guccione, NJ, 2012.Subject:
Twenty year old Ginger Miller, a snow and sauna lover from San Antonio, Texas, has an old-fashioned, southern outlook on loving relationships. Wide-eyed 36-23-35 Ginger feels positive about her own looks. "I'm lucky to have a pretty body. It makes me feel very special, particularly when people like me well enough to print my photographs." The combination of young woman lushness and wise-woman perception makes it easy for her to pursue a successful modeling career. The contradictions in Ginger's nature made her slow to accept the invitation to pose her first nude photo session.Photographer:
In 1965, Bob Guccione, a struggling artist with an entrepreneurial imagination, started a magazine called Penthouse. Due to his lack of resources, Guccione personally photographed most of the models for the magazine's early issues. He spent long hours, and sometimes, several days, to complete a photo shoot. Although he had no professional training, Guccione applied his knowledge of painting to his photography, establishing the diffused, soft focus look that would become one of the trademarks of the magazine's pictorials. These images offered more sexually explicit content than other gentleman’s magazines of the era, establishing Penthouse as a well known name amongst its competitors. Featured Video:
