My Karsh Mon Karsh


Published on

This was demonstrated at Museums and the Web conference in Indianapolis, Indiana on April 18, 2009.

December 23, 2008 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Yousuf Karsh, widely recognized as Canada’s leading portrait photographer of the 20th century.

To celebrate this milestone, the Portrait Gallery of Canada (PGC), a program of Library and Archives Canada, in collaboration with the Canada Science and Technology Museum (CSTM), will present a series of events and activities in 2009.

Festival Karsh will include a trail of locations significant to Mr. Karsh’s life and work, a major exhibition at the CSTM, a Karsh website and a roster of special events and programming. After its showing at the Museum, the exhibition will be available to galleries and museums nationally and internationally until 2012.

Share your Karsh images and stories!

Festival Karsh is a collaborative undertaking that explores Yousuf Karsh as a storyteller. You are invited to share the Karsh portraits in your family and to tell us your own stories.

Engaging images and stories may be included in the major Karsh exhibition
which will open at the Canada Science and Technology Museum in June 2009.
Or perhaps you would like to add your original portrait to the national portrait collection!
