About Stamp

Yousuf Karsh (Grey Owl [Archibald Belaney, 1888-1938], 1936). One of the masters of 20th century photography, Karsh saw his subjects in terms of light, shadow and form. His body of work includes portraits of government leaders, artists, musicians, authors and scientists. The photograph of writer and conservationist Archibald Belaney, a British citizen who convinced the world he was ‘Grey Owl,’ was made five years before his portrait of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill made Karsh an international success.


Design: Stéphane Huot.
