Bettie Page and the pin-up photography of Bunny Yeager

Bunny Yeager's Beautiful BacksidesBunny Yeager – the pin-up model turned pin-up photographer – died earlier this week at the age of 85. Yeager is particularly famous for her work with Bettie Page, whose career she helped to launch.

When she was 17 her family moved to Florida and she began working as a model. In 1953 she began taking photography night classes. For an assignment, she took photos of friends dressed in leopard-print swimsuits and one of her images was used on the cover of Eye magazine, kick-starting her professional career behind the camera.

She also took the still images of Bond girl Ursula Andress, in a cream bikini, in the 1962 007 movie Dr. No. Yeager’s peak came in the 1950s and 1960s.

More than 20 books of her photography were published between the mid-1960s to 2012 ranging from instructional guides for glamour snappers to glossy modern tributes.

Someone who is serious about Yeager’s work with Bettie Page can pick up this contact sheet for $6,000.
