About this title

Synopsis:

Yousuf Karsh has been at work for over half a century, and his camera has repeatedly photographed statesmen, artists, the literati and scientific figures. This work contains nearly 200 photographs of people such as Ronald Reagan, Graeme Greene and Andy Warhol.

Review:

This revised and updated portfolio includes nearly 200 images by the master portrait photographer. The best known faces of our time have been memorably "Karshed"--a glowering Churchill (his trademark cigar having been just snatched out of his mouth), a beaming Khruschev peeking out from a massive fur coat, a serene Helen Keller reading a book of Braille with quiet delight, a pensive Tennessee Williams at his typewriter, an impish Margaret O'Brien yanking at her pigtails. Karsh's portraits of fellow artists--especially sculptors and architects--are among his most sensitive and intuitive.
