Yousuf Karsh: Industrial Images

January 31, 2009 - July 5, 2009

Yousuf Karsh, the iconic Canadian photographer known for his portraits of prime ministers, presidents, movie stars, authors, philosophers, scientists, artists, popes, and other luminaries of the twentieth century, was also a commercial and industrial photographer. The Yousuf Karsh: Industrial Images exhibition was a culmination of Karsh’s industrial and commercial work with Ford of Canada, Atlas Steel in Welland, Ontario, and Sharon Steel in Pennsylvania, and a variety of other commercial images. The exhibition explored the tone of Karsh’s industrial and commercial portraits in relation to the work and life philosophies prevalent in post-WWII North America.

This project is organized and circulated by the Art Gallery of Windsor with the support of the Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited, the Portrait Gallery of Canada, a program of the Library and Archives Canada, the Museums Assistance Program of the Department of Canadian Heritage, CAW-TCA Canada, and Estrellita Karsh.
