Cornell Capa, 1990

Karsh photographed a handful of his fellow photographers. Robert Capa was photographed in 1990 for Karsh’s “American Legends” series; he had previously been photographed in 1981. Like Karsh, Capa had intended to study medicine; instead he joined his brother, Robert Capa, in pursuing photography.

Other photographers who sat for Karsh include Harold Edgerton, Jacques Henri Lartigue, Ansel Adams, and Edward Steichen. In fact, Steichen was photographed on four occasions. See the Sitting info.
