Yousuf Karsh

I went to the Art Institute of Chicago today saw a gorgeous collection of portraits by Yousuf Karsh. Defiantly want the Catalogue. During his career he held 15,312 sittings, produced over 150,000 negatives, and left an indelible artistic and historic record of the men and women who shaped the twentieth century. He was lucky to photograph so many amazing people. Some of my favorites were: Frank Lloyd Wright, Audrey Hepburn (both above), Helen Keller, Andy Warhol, Picasso, Albert Einstein.... so good. see more of them here.

I went to have lunch today and the bread of my sandwich had fennel seeds in it. Ugh... shiver. Whoever thought to add fennel seeds into a perfectly good sandwich has forgotten how to use their tastebuds. Yuck!

Goodness from the design presentations number one. I thought I might die, but I gave my presentation and it was good. I did ok, got a direction. It was good. Good stuff. Time to work. Working hard.
