In August and September of 1988, Yousuf Karsh's long-time assistant, Jerry Fielder, sat down with the master photographer and taped over nine hours of recollections of the many portrait sessions he'd experienced in one of the greatest careers in history. Karsh spoke of his sitters and his rags-to-riches life, including much that had never before been revealed or recorded. Previously, Karsh had often paired his full-page portraits with stories of his encounters with famous sitters. However, as his œuvre grew, the photographs soon eclipsed the commentary, and his essays were often edited down to captions.Drawing from the newly rediscovered 1988 recordings, Karsh: Beyond the Camera reestablishes the original presentation of Karsh's work, pairing each photograph with the story of its making on the facing page. Published in an affordable small format paperback with flaps, Karsh's portraits are elucidated and complemented both by his own recollections and by the text of veteran curator David Travis. The resulting book, with its chronological rather than thematic arrangement of portraits, is a study of Karsh's artistic and stylistic development, offering the reader an unparalleled tour through the greatest images of the photographer's life work.As much as Karsh wrote about his portrait sessions, he rarely revealed what he thought about himself. Travis constructs the compelling history of how a brilliant technician behind the camera was able to go beyond the studio trappings to plumb the psychological realm all great portrait photographers must navigate and master. Although Karsh had a deep understanding of the human psyche, he worked on an emotional level rather than an analytical one. Thus, his stories seldom addressed what he thought about his artistic experiences. This essential element of Karsh's work is what David Travis locates and fills in, drawing not only from the anecdotes themselves, but from the one thing that has been missing from all publications prior to this – the photographer's voice.

Just as Emma and her husband, Peter, began settling in to what should have been the golden years of their retirement, everything fell apart. Peter decided to suddenly leave their marriage of forty-one years, turning Emma’s world upside-down. Hurt and confused, Emma found herself living alone for the first time in her life, at sixty-five years of age. She abruptly had significant choices to make, new skills to learn, and countless tears to shed. In a relatively short time she and Peter divided their belongings, sold their home, and legally separated. Discovering her own strength and independence, Emma began a new existence. Refusing to surrender herself to a life of self-pity and loneliness, she took charge of her own future and her own happiness. Over time, despair and sadness were replaced with joy and gratitude for her new life, which eventually led her to a new love. Though it was disguised as trauma, Emma realized her first husband had given her the gift of a lifetime, to which she could only answer, “Thanks for leaving me.”

With a camera as his backstage pass, Herman Leonard has photographed the giants of jazz in their golden age, movie stars on set and on their travels to exotic places, the fashion world of Paris in the 1960s, and the inner sanctums of his beloved New Orleans. His friendships with the jazz greats allowed him to vividly capture the magical moments of the Harlem and Paris jazz clubs in the 1940s and 50s, using his unique command of cinematic lighting to capture the essence of the time. His colourful life and travels enabled him to document the lives of the cultural icons of his day, with such rare images as Marilyn Monroe on an elephant in the circus, to Albert Einstein at his desk. This exquisite book is the first full treatment of this extraordinary life and distinctive body of work, giving Leonard's photographs the artistic recognition that they deserve. 29 colour & 237 b/w illustrations
