Yousuf Karsh @ the Downtown Libray

The Central Library's first floor gallery features portraits by Yousef Karsh to celebrate what would have been his 100th birthday. He only made it to 93...photographers do seem to have a secret for longevity.

If there was a major personality of the 20th century, Karsh shot their portrait and extremely well. He tells a little about each one on his comprehensive website.

I couldn't resist selecting this one to show, as I'm currently re-reading Islands in the Stream.
