Karsh Signature

Yousuf Karsh, master photographer of the 20th century


Madame Lucia Beshro and family, 1930s, by Yousuf Karsh

It is worth taking a few minutes (or hours) to search the Library and Archives of Canada’s online collection for early Karsh images. With summer in full swing here in the Northern Hemisphere, I ran a search for “summer” and found a surprising series of photographs of Madame Lucia Beshro and her family, from the 1930s. In fact, as noted on the original Sitting records, the Beshros had ordered some prints in “Summer, 1939.”
