Yousuf Karsh: Heroes of Light and Shadow
by Dieter Vorsteher
Publisher's Description
"This outstanding collection of Karsh's greatest works demonstrates his masterful use of light and shadow to illuminate his model's dignity and uniqueness. It includes his portraits of the most famous among us - Winston Churchill, Sophia Loren, Jacques Cousteau, Audrey Hepburn, and dozens of others - as well as his lesser known but unmistakable images of anonymous subjects, from steel and assembly line workers and farmers to clerics, children, and unknown people on bustling city streets. Also gracing this compilation are examples of his early work as a theatrical photographer, work that introduced him to the potential of using artificial lighting to accentuate subjects' features and carve their images out of shadows."-the publisher.
