Yousuf Karsh

Karsh is one of my favourite portrait photographers. And next year, the homeless Portrait Gallery of Canada will organize an exhibition at the Canada Science and Technology Museum to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Karsh. Portraits of Picasso and Giacometti are shown here.

The Portrait Gallery announced the exhibition during a ceremony launching three postage stamps in Karsh's honour. The stamps are available through Canada Post and feature the famous "Roaring Lion" portrait of Churchill, as well as a portrait of Audrey Hepburn and a self-portrait.
