Yousuf Karsh


Classic photographers

Yousuf Karsh just died. Maybe you read about it. He became famous with his Churchill portrait but I think his other works are much more interesting. His portraits are amazingly telling. You get the impression that Karsh was able to show everything you would want to know about a person. It’s interesting to compare his style of photography with what people do today. Do today’s portrait photographers achieve what Karsh did?
