Abstract [sv]

The essay, ”On the Threshold of a War: Eliot Elisofon and LIFE in Finland 1939,” is a close, critical reading of the very first article (in collaboration with Thérèse Bonney) Elisofon produced for LIFE It was published on 23 October 1939, at a time drawing near to the Soviet Union attacking Finland (the Winter War). The essay's focus is on a triangular ideological dramaturgy, listing imperial, orientalist Russia threatening to invade a young underdeveloped Western state. The essay's undercover appeal of mature big-brother US is its accountableness to help. The photographs, their subtitles and literary context, underline the theme of missionary salvation.

This is the first article of three about Eliot Elisofon in Sweden and Finland, in 1939 and 1944.
