George Bernard Shaw by Yousuf Karsh.

“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.”

Yousuf Karsh (December 23, 1908 – July 13, 2002)
