Yousuf Karsh

Sunday 14 July 2002

No, I am not obsessed with big cameras, but I must mention that Yousuf Karsh died yesterday. He was the man who made that 1941 photograph of Winston Churchill looking like an affronted bulldog (Karsh took away the Prime Minister’s cigar during the session). See this obituary in the New York Times, and many of his portraits on the Eastman Museum website.
