Karsh Weddings

Karsh, wedding, 1937

In his early years of practice in the 1930s, Yousuf Karsh photographed the Canadian public: their weddings, pets, kids. When Karsh closed his studio in 1992, his negatives and work prints went to the Library and Archives Canada, (LAC), where they are safely housed and are accessible for research purposes. Some of Karsh’s earliest works have been scanned and they are often accompanied in the LAC database by their negatives. Here is an example of a wedding in 1937, “Wilson-Haddow” one of more than 200 weddings we have listed, and are searchable, here on the Karsh website.
