A Conversation With Estrellita Karsh

As part of the virtual vernissage for our exhibition “Yousuf Karsh: A Private Essence” at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Estrellita Karsh spoke with Mary-Dailey Desmarais, Chief Curator. Mrs. Karsh reveals insights into Yousuf’s early life, and how the two of them met, when she was a medical writer and Karsh came to photograph Dr. Walter Alvarez, the doctor with whom she worked at the time.

The exhibition is on view now through the end of January, 2022.
