Anglo Saxons pride themselves on their cultural contributions to the world. The British consider that they are carrying on the tradition of their ancestors by maintaining these standards in all forms of the arts and sciences . Little did we know when we met lovely Maria Clarance in London, that we were going to have to prove that we too are trying to maintain not only a distinct artistic and individual photographic style, but interesting and lively Iiterazy, copy as well. Maria Clarance made these demands of us, and since we wanted to use her services as a model, we were willing to submit to her … request.
Since this is the first issue of Eve, Maria insisted on seeing all the photographic and editorial copy to be used in both the first and second issue of this publication. After a careful study of all the material at hand, she agreed to pose for Eve. We decided that Maria was not only the kind of girl who knew what she liked, but why she liked it. She informed us that very often she turned down a job when she thought the publication did not live up to her standards.
Maria is serious about her modeling career. In spare time she studies ballet and modern dance in order to keep fit, and to improve her posing technique. Maria’s hobbies include listening to classical music, she has a huge collection of records that include scores from Broadway shows and some jazz.
In a few days Maria’s proof sheets were ready. I must admit that we were a bit dubious as to whether she would approve of our photographic efforts. She thought the photos exceptionally good, and far above the ordinary lot she had .seen of herself. So there you have the opinion of an expert, and we know that all of you must agree with her. Why? Because you bought this magazine, that’s why. You and Maria are very discriminating people.
