Discussions about the new Karsh website began in the summer of 2015. The estate wanted to broaden the work displayed and bring new focus to the legacy work undertaken. In February 2016 we specified what would be in the new website. In March of 2017 the site received it’s 1,000,000th visit from someone in Toronto at 2.58pm GMT and we made the new site live.
Yousuf Karsh is possibly one of the greatest photographers ever. This is the official site of the Estate of Yousuf Karsh. It is a multimedia retrospective of his life and work: photographs, news and exhibitions, bibliography. It’s thoroughly modern whilst maintaining the traditional simplicity and elegance demanded by the work of Karsh.
