Event description
This is a fundraising event for the Photographic Museum of Ontario. We will display photography work of Canadian Photographer Yousuf Karsh.

About this Event

On Sat. May 18, 2019, the PMO is proud to present a day with Karsh. Come learn about the photographer who has taken some of the most iconic photos of our time.

Yousuf Karsh was an Armenian-Canadian photographer known for his portraits of notable individuals. He has been described as one of the greatest portrait photographers of the 20th century.

Karsh's photos were known for their use of dramatic lighting, which became the hallmark of his portrait style.

Martin Luther King, Winston Churchill, Audrey Hepburn, Albert Einstein, to name but a few have been photographed by this legend.

We will start with a short documentary followed by a slide show of his work. We will also have a few pieces of his originals on display.

Door prizes, 50/50 draw and photography items for sale.

Cost $ 30.00

Time: 6:30 - 9:30

All proceeds of this event will go directly to the Photographic Museum of Ontario to help us build our first location to preserve the history and art of photography.
