Ella Eronen, one of Finland’s most beloved actresses


The gold clock relentlessly ticking. The portrait of her younger self, gazing down, perhaps, with gentle irony. And the mirror reflecting—what? Vanity, surely. But also, I think, wistful longing...

Photo by @jodicobbphoto Beautiful post on National Geographic's Proof blog this morning. Seven colleagues, each with over 30 years at the magazine, posted their favorite photographs in NG's history. Moved by Cathy Newman's words about this photograph of Ella Eronen -- and this is why I've loved working with Cathy all these years. Read the full post of NG's Proof blog. "Jodi has the rare ability to capture irony in an image. But most of all, her photographs twist the heart and speak to the blurred line between tears and laughter in life. This is a photograph I love so much that it hangs in my library. It’s one of Jodi’s early photographs for the magazine, and I adore it—among other reasons—because it is the pictorial equivalent of a short story that could have been written by Colette. It was taken on assignment for a story on Helsinki and the subject—Ella Eronen, one of Finland’s most beloved actresses—greeted Jodi at the door and told her to wait while she put on the costume of “Madame,” an actress who felt lost unless she had a role to play. It was her most famous role, and that’s the portrait we see hanging on the wall. Eronen moved around and posed with great drama until finally, needing to catch a breath, she sat down and lifted a mirror to check her makeup. That was when Jodi snapped the frame—and captured a small, sharp narrative of age seeking to recapture youth. It’s all there in one image. The gold clock relentlessly ticking. The portrait of her younger self, gazing down, perhaps, with gentle irony. And the mirror reflecting—what? Vanity, surely. But also, I think, wistful longing. It is the human condition at its most poignant. My gratitude is centered on the privilege of having worked alongside colleagues with such exquisite sensibility." Cathy Newman
