CBC | Radio-Canada Documentary Karsh: The Searching Eye

Yousuf Karsh photographed the 20th century’s most esteemed political and cultural leaders, artists, actors, religious figures and scientists — Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein, Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, Muhammad Ali, Indira Gandhi, Jackie Kennedy Onassis and many more. This classic documentary reveals the glamour in Karsh’s life and the modesty he maintained while being privy to so many famous lives. Karsh himself is storyteller and guide as we view hundreds of his celebrated photographs. He is also seen at work in several photographic sessions, including a memorable one with the often-irascible Leonard Bernstein.
