The exhibit, organized in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts , Boston , showcases more than 60 portraits ranging from Alfred Hitchcock and Princess Elizabeth to Muhammad Ali and Audrey Hepburn. Each of the portraits is unique due to Karsh’s ability to capture the essence of the individual. He believed that each person he photographed had a hidden secret and it was his job to reveal it.

Yousuf Karsh: Icons of the 20th Century offers guests the opportunity to get up close and personal with a select few of Karsh’s world-renowned portraits and learn about his distinct style that reached beyond the subject’s face. Throughout his lifetime, Karsh produced more than 50,000 original prints, some of which are now on display through September 5. This is the first time in nearly a decade that BGFA is featuring a photography exhibit.

BGFA is open daily 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. Last admissions are sold 30 minutes prior to closing. Guests also may enjoy daily docent tours at 2 p.m., included with all paid admissions.
