The Sept. 3, 1945, issue of LIFE introduced Linda Christian, the first Bond girl, to its millions of readers this way:

Almost before the ink was dry on headlines announcing the crash of the first atomic bomb, Hollywood had turned the event to good publicity. At the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio Miss Linda Christians, a hitherto obscure starlet, was solemnly proclaimed the Anatomic Bomb. Half-Mexican, half-Dutch, Linda was born in Tampico, Mexico, thinks it was 22 years ago. Her real name is Blanca Rose Welter. Her father, an oil executive, traveled widely, taking his family with him. They were in Palestine in 1941 during a bomb scare. Linda was evacuated to Mexico with a bad case of malaria, recovered, went to Hollywood to join her brother, got a job modeling hats, was seen and singed by M-G-M. So far she has been in no pictures, the publicity role of the Anatomic Bomb being her first important assignment. With long residence in Holland, Italy, France and Switzerland, Linda thinks Hollywood is wonderful.

SUBMISSION:
Blown Heart is a straight-forward piece. It’s a heart made out of a vinyl plastic balloon popular in the Philippines when I was a kid (late 90’s). I wanted to play with anonymity and the old adage of wearing your heart on your sleeve, but since the heart has now become the mask to cover the face, it makes an interesting thing to think about. Mo Maguyon is a 20 year old photographer/university student from the Philippines. Follow her tumblr for more… strange ideas.
