Yousuf Karsh is acknowledged to be the twentieth century's leading portrait photographer, whose iconic images of Bogart, Hemingway, Churchill, the Kennedys, Auden, Castro, Einstein, the Clintons, Khrushchev, Casals, Elizabeth II inhabit the mind's eye of anyone familiar with photographic history. A refugee from the ethnic cleansing of Turkish Armenians in 1916, Karsh made his home in Boston and Ottawa, but travelled the globe during his 60-year career, photographing political leaders, celebrities, monarchs and movie stars. He died in 2002, aged 94. His archive contains 50,000 portraits.This is the first biography, written with help from his family and colleagues, and based on the Karsh archive in Ottawa. It will mark Karsh's centenary in 2008, when retrospective exhibitions are scheduled in a number of locations in North America (Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Art Institute of Chicago, Boston Public Library, Rhode Island School of Design).
