Yousuf Karsh

While researching portrait photographers I came across Yousuf Karsh. He has had an incredible career lasting about 70 years. It says on his website that with portraits alone he has had over 15,000 sittings and produced over 150,000 negatives, from Winston Churchill to Fidel Castro and on one 17 month assignment he produced over 8,000 images of Canada’s post World War II economic development, I thought that was pretty amazing.
