Albert Camus

Albert Camus, 1954

With so many Sittings it is not possible for us to include images of every subject but we do keep adding to the digital archive. Here is a freshly scanned print of Albert Camus, so different than the frame we have been used to seeing.

Camus was a French philosopher, author and journalist. Three years after he sat for Karsh, Camus would receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. He was the second-youngest recipient of this Prize, at the age of 44 – Rudyard Kipling was only 42 when he received his.
