Karsh: A Biography In Images, Malcolm RogersKarsh: A Biography In Images, Malcolm Rogers During his remarkable life, Yousuf Karsh, who was born in Armenia in 1908, traveled the globe to photograph subjects ranging from historical figures to anonymous farmers to steelworks. Karsh's reputation as one of the most sought-after portrait photographers of the 20th century is well established. A roll call of his subjects is a veritable who's who of the modern age - Winston Churchill, Jacqueline Kennedy, Pablo Picasso, Walt Disney, Elizabeth Taylor and Albert Einstein, to name just a few - and this book features many of these figures, in some of the most recognized images of our time. But added to the portraits are a number of lesser-known or previously unpublished photographs--early figure studies, atmospheric views of the Ottawa theatre and scenes of wheat fields, city streets and factories across Canada.
