The lady owner of this quad was happy to lend it to June to be photographed for a celebrity magazine.
June and I appeared the Shaftsbury Theatre for a magazine event in 2011. These three photos were taken using a compact 35 millimetre film camera.
June’s freckles are permanent, being applied during manufacture.
Compatibility between heads and bodies of different doll manufacturers is rare, but June can borrow Laura’s body. This photo of June is one of a series of three I had on an earlier web site (now gone). The caption to the photo preceding this one was something like, “The hum of insects reminded June of an incident in her family when she was younger.”
June, even more than Rebecca, is a bookish girl and she often likes to sit on her own, reading. She is practised at finding a place for that in this house crowded with dolls. I took this photo in late December, 2018.
The pictures on this wall, which I cut from magazines and calendars, are exposed to strong light and have faded. In the small photo on the right of the hang glider over the surf, the sailcloth is bright yellow (a dramatic contrast) but in the photo it has faded to pale grey.
…you are creating your own weather, you are making your own environment, always.

I discovered film of a June lookalike in a bar in Paris in 1981. (To be fair, you don’t see much of her, but the hair at least is similar!) That June should have studied in Paris is unsurprising. (I sustained my back injury that year and I knew nothing about the silicone rubber younger sister I would discover nearly 30 years later.) Regardless, I am a bit shocked at this…
It is in the video of this song: The Stranglers – La Folie (Album Edit) on Vimeo, with June misbehaving at 2 minutes 27 seconds (repeated in several places).
