A great and interesting photographer indeed! My husband had the wonderful good fortune and opportunity to become friends with a great photographer Herman Leonard who apprenticed under Karsh for a year (I believe in 1948).
Known for his portraits of Jazz greats in the 40's and 50's, Mr. Leonard told us that the lighting he learned from Karsh, along with many other elements, was an important key in his own photography. Herman Leonard worked with Karsh during the sessions with Einstein, Harry S. Truman and Clark Gable, among many others.
I think Leonard, along with Karsh, can be considered among the pioneers who 'sculpted' with light!!
