Henry Kissinger

Henry Kissinger, 1972

This portrait of Henry Kissinger illustrates a book review in The New Yorker‘s May 18, 2020, issue. “Barry Gewen’s new book, The Inevitability of Tragedy (Norton), belongs to the neither-revile-him-nor-revere-him school of Kissingerology.” Read the article.

Kissinger was Special Advisor for National Security for the President of the United States when he was photographed by Karsh in 1972. He was photographed a second time, in 1990, for Karsh’s “American Legends” series. See who else was photographed. See a portrait of Kissinger from the later Sitting.
