Karsh Signature

Yousuf Karsh, master photographer of the 20th century


We are very pleased to announce our partnership with the creators of the new three-part, six-hour series “Hemingway” in which Ken Burns and Lynn Novick explore the life and work of the legendary writer and his enduring influence on literature and culture. PBS produced this fabulous treatment that recreates the famous Karsh portrait using Hemingway’s words, reinforcing our iconic portrait as the image conjured in the public’s mind when they think of the great man. Compliments to the Ken Burns team at Florentine Films, and to PBS and their studio partners, SJI Associates, for their creativity, and for being such a pleasure to work with. Learn more about the series. See the original Karsh photograph and others from their sitting.
