Karsh Signature

Yousuf Karsh, master photographer of the 20th century

Norman Jewison

Norman Jewison, 1973

With upwards of 15,000 Sittings made by Mr. Karsh, we continue to digitize his works. Freshly scanned from an original print is this portrait of Canadian film director, producer, actor, and founder of the Canadian Film Centre, Norman Jewison. The record for Jewison’s Sitting reads “For Canadian Book”, a reference to what would become Karsh Canadians (University of Toronto Press, 1978).

The book is chock full of celebrated Canadians. See a list of who else was photographed, including Margaret Atwood and Dr. Hans Selye.
