“ There is a brief moment when all there is in a man's mind and soul and spirit is reflected through his eyes, his hands, his attitude. This is the moment to record”
Yousuf Karsh.

Yousuf karsh ( 1908-2002) was the Greatest Portrait Photographer world ever saw. A master in capturing Moods , Inner feelings and even something that was brewing up in the mind of his subject.

He was an Armenian who survived the genocide and later took up Canadian Nationality .

There is hardly any world leader or Nobel Laureate whom karsh has not photographed. He happened to be a  friend of Albert camus and accordingly Some of the best Portrait photographs of camus have been done by Karsh .

“Within every man and woman a secret is hidden, and as a photographer it is my task to reveal it if I can.”
