“Countless Journeys”

Yousuf Karsh, 1960s

“Countless Journeys” is a podcast from the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21; Season 3, which has just launched, celebrates the contributions of Canadian immigrants to the performing and visual arts. They begin with “a celebration of the life and work of legendary photographer Yousuf Karsh.”

“Karsh’s life story, from refugee to world-class photographer, unfolds, along with more than 100 of his portraits, in a wonderful exhibit featured at the Canadian Museum of Immigration, “The World of Yousuf Karsh: A Private Essence.” We speak with Dr. Hilliard Goldfarb, who is senior curator emeritus with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and the lead curator of the exhibit.” Listen here.

This episode, “Visionaries Past & Present,” also includes Dinuk Wijeratne, a Juno award winning composer and performer whose music blurs boundaries and shakes up traditional approaches to classical music.
