Festival Karsh will introduce the Canadian portrait photographer, Yousuf Karsh, and his work to a broader audience by exploring the contexts, myths and stories behind his work, and how photography shapes our understanding of power, fame and the self. The summer-long festival is a collaboration of the Canada Science and Technology Museum (CSTM) and the Portrait Gallery of Canada (PGC), a program of Library and Archives Canada. Festival Karsh will run from June 12 to September 12.
