Karsh Portrait Collection at the Brigham's (Boston)
I was at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston yesterday and happened to come across these wonderful Karsh “Healers of Our Age” portraits along the Neeson Pike (2nd floor). Stunningly beautiful! The lighting and attention to detail is exquisite. I've never seen B&W images this large! I understand one of his techniques was to light the hands of his subjects separately from the head/face area.
I saw the recent PBS Documentary on Karsh and am making a date to go see more of his work at the Armenian Museum of America in Watertown, MA.
Thank you for the link. For long years when portrait was mentioned Yousuf Karsh used to come to mind as being the greatest, not unlike what Ansel Adams was for landscapes. His harsh but intricate lighting technique and using mostly 8X10 format were his trademarks. His style has never been copied and being photographed by him was a privilage enjoyed rather by the prominents. I had his book however never been able to see his real pictures from a close distance. Lucky you are...
Thanks for the Link, really great!
