Yousuf Karsh's Portraits of Artists at Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC

Posted By Administration, Sunday, July 26, 2009

Caught in the light, Yousuf Karsh placed his subjects on their rightful pedestals.

Pick your dreary image: It's a holding cell, a decompression chamber, a place so formidably austere you'd think no fantasies could ever form there. But however grim the small, darkened gallery at the Canadian Embassy appears, walk around the 28 photographs by Yousuf Karsh on display in "Karsh at 100: Portraits of Artists," and you'll find that the space feels more like a sculpture garden.

Karsh at 100: Portraits of Artists, closes Dec. 18. At the Embassy of Canada, 501 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. Open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.
