Churchill by Karsh

Winston Churchill by Yousuf Karsh, 1941



"KARSH IS HISTORY: YOUSUF KARSH AND PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY" traces the remarkable, six-decade career of Karsh, during which he made 15,312 portraits, among them some of the most celebrated figures of the 20th century. His subjects were the great personalities of his generation: statesmen, artists, musicians, authors, actors, and scientists -and every American president from Roosevelt to Clinton. Karsh had a remarkable gift of capturing their essence in an instant. Even more impressive, Karsh shot his photographs with film, which still required careful development and processing. One of his most famous shots was his iconic 1941 portrait ofWinston Churchill, which (like so many of his others) appeared on the cover of Life magazine and sealed Karsh's place in history.
