Pinup photographer Bunny Yeager, who helped the start of Bettie Page's career, has passed away. Her agent Ed Christin told The Associated Press that the model-turned-photographer passed away at a North Miami hospice on Sunday, May 25 from congestive heart failure, a week after she was taken to the hospice. She was 85.
Born on March 13, 1929 in Wilkinsburg, Pa., Linnea Eleanor Yeager was interested in modeling before working behind the camera. She is known for her works whose theme centers around nudity. "Anyone in Miami in the 1950s who wanted a bikini would come to her, and she'd make one," the agent said.
