face time

October 25, 2017

I love seeing family resemblances and I’ve always enjoyed the resemblance between Ingrid Bergman and her daughter, Isabella Rossellini. It’s the same thread that runs through both women. The similarities are uncanny, and yet both faces are utterly unique. “I’m not trying to look like my mother,” Rossellini said in the Telegraph once. “But I’m feeling more Swedish as I grow older. And no matter what I do to my appearance, people say: ‘It’s Ingrid!’ If I wear my hair short, I’m the Ingrid of For Whom the Bell Tolls. If I wear it long, I’m the Ingrid of Casablanca.” I’m sure there’s frustration and pressure in a lifetime of comparison. But there’s also pride. This is my favourite photo of Rossellini, and this is one of my favourites of Ingrid Bergman. It’s the same laughing face, but different.
