Jerry Fielder, Curator and Director of the Estate of Yousuf Karsh, was assistant to photographer, Yousuf Karsh for 32 years until Karsh closed his Ottawa studio in 1992. In 2003, Fielder authored a book on Karsh's life entitled KARSH: A Biography in Images.
In1988, Jerry Fielder sat down with the master photographer and tape recorded over nine hours of Karsh's recollections of many of his portrait sessions with world leaders, artists, writers, and Hollywood celebrities. Karsh spoke of his subjects and his early life as a photographer including much that had never been recorded. Drawing from these recordings, David Travis, former Curator of Photography at the Art Institute of Chicago, offers the reader an unparalleled tour through many of Karsh's iconic photographic images bringing together the otherwise silent voice behind the camera and the images recognized by millions around the world. This new book was recently published in Spring 2012.
Jerry Fielder's presentation is sure to offer an entirely new perspective to photographers, art-lovers, and anyone interested in the psychological insights of this world-renown master photographer - a library event not to be missed.
