Yousuf Karsh 1908-2002 THIRD MOST FAMOUS
PICTURE IN THE WORLD Karsh's beggining Yousuf Karsh 1908-2002 Karsh's beggining When Karsh was 14, he fled with his family to the safety of Syria. Two years later, young Yousuf was sent to live with his uncle George Nakash, a photographer in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. Karsh attended school there briefly and helped in his uncle’s studio. Nakash saw great potential in his nephew and, in 1928, arranged for Karsh to apprentice with portrait photographer John Garo of Boston. Winston Churchill Winston Churchill Yousuf Karsh was born December 23, 1908 and passed away on July 13, 2002. He was born in Madin, Armenia and became one of the world’s most renowned portrait photographers. His most famous picture is a portrait of Winston Churchill in 1941 but was well know by many celebrities like Albert Einstein. WHO IS HE?! WHO IS HE?! Karsh's Uprise! Karsh's Uprise! When Karsh returned to Canada from Boston four years later, he was eager to make his mark. He established a studio on Sparks Street in Ottawa, close to Canada’s seat of government. Eventually, the Canadian Prime Minister, Mackenzie King, discovered Karsh and took a liking to him. The Prime Minister arranged introductions for Karsh with visiting dignitaries, whom he convinced to sit for portraits. His work was attracting the attention of varied celebrities, but Karsh’s own place in history was sealed in 1941 when Winston Churchill came to Ottawa.
