Karsh (1908 - 2002) is the most renowned portrait
photographer of our time. He has perceptively photographed
the statesmen, artists, and literary and scientific
figures that have shaped our lives in the 20th century.
Known for his ability to transform “the human face
into legend,” many of the portraits that he created
have become virtually the image of the great man
or woman they portray, whether Winston Churchill,
Ernest Hemingway, Albert Einstein, Georgia O’Keefe
or Helen Keller. In other words, “to experience
a Karsh photograph is to feel in the presence of
history itself.” His photographs are in major private
and public collections throughout the world, the
Museum of Fine Arts in Boston holding the largest
collection in the US.
