Karsh Signature

Yousuf Karsh, master photographer of the 20th century

Philippe-Guy E. Woog

Mr. and Mrs. Philippe-Guy E. Woog and Carl, 1986

We are always delighted to hear from relatives of Karsh Sitters, especially when the relative was also photographed, as in this lovely family portrait which was kindly sent to us by Carl Woog. This Sitting is in Karsh’s records as “October 27, 1986. Mr. & Mrs. Philippe-Guy E. Woog and young son, Carl.”

Never a dull moment at the Karsh archive, we learned that not only was Mr. Woog senior an award-winning photographer, but also, in 1954 he invented the first electric toothbrush, the “Broxodent.” Learn more.
