Character, like a photograph, develops in darkness.More Yousuf Karsh quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If it's a likeness, alone, it's not a success. If, through my portraits, you can come to know the subjects more meaningfully, if it synthesizes your feelings toward someone whose work has imprinted itself on your mind--if you see a photograph and say, 'Yes, this is the person,' with a little new insight--that is a beautiful experience.More Yousuf Karsh quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I try to photograph people's spirits and thoughts. As to the soul-taking by the photographer, I don't feel I take away, but rather that the sitter and I give to each other. It becomes an act of mutual participation.More Yousuf Karsh quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

If there is a single quality that is shared by all great men, it is vanity. But I mean by vanity only that they appreciate their own worth. Without this kind of vanity they would not be great. And with vanity alone, of course, a man is nothing.More Yousuf Karsh quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
