Auction Editor’s Pick: 35mm Janet Dunphy
The editor’s pick of the upcoming Filthy Gorgeous Auction is a one of a kind transparency of the proactive Janet Dunphy by photographer Bob Guccione.
As an editor, I have the privilege to examine the Filthy Gorgeous archive of original and erotic slides and photographs. In this week’s auction, my pick goes to a 35mm slide of Janet Dunphy.
The January 17, 2015 auction is a compilation of curvy women who knew that in life, as in art, there is beauty in curves. Curves offer many interesting angles and men do not just discover the curves, they uncover them. In this auction, the bidder has the opportunity to purchase 35mm slides and 120mm negatives taken by Penthouse founder Bob Guccione, Suze Randall, and Philip Mund. This auction also showcases models such as Avril Lund, Cheryl Rixon, Sasha Vinni, and Tamara Mindas.
While each piece in this timeless collection is stunning, my editor’s pick, again, goes to lot #55, an original, erotic, and unpublished 35mm slide featuring Janet Dunphy taken by photographer Bob Guccione in 1972.
Janet Dunphy was a piano playing Pet that flew from London to Yugoslavia to New York and back again during promotional tours for the magazine’s ever expanding interests. Barely 19 years old at the time of her photoshoot, this music fan was a notable 35-25-37 which made a career in modeling and promotion, high on her scale of priorities. This one-of-a-kind slide is guaranteed to be an original and delivered directly from the Filthy Gorgeous Media archives. Each item will be packaged with an item specific certificate of authenticity and each certificate is customized according to lot and signed by the CEO of Filthy Gorgeous Media.
