"The name Yousuf Karsh has been synonymous with photographic portraiture ever since his image of a defiant Winston Churchill was published in 1941. His remarkable career has now spanned sixty years, but he continues to forge ahead, breaking new ground as he portrays the people who - each in his or her own way - have influenced our world. In American Legends, his latest volume of new portraits, most taken over the last two years, Yousuf Karsh captures the essence of nearly seventy-five of North America's most fascinating and compelling personalities - from the performing arts, sports, and publishing to the worlds of science and philanthropy." - from the dj.
