An exhibition at the MFA

Glass - and Yousuf Karsh

Went to the Museum of Fine art in Boston on Sunday and was pleased to be able to take my camera.

I didn't realize this until we got there, but there was an exhibition of some of the images of Yousuf Karsh who famously took the cigar out of Winston Churchill's mouth for the portrait that has him glowering at the camera.

The exhibition is quite stunning. The quality and size of the prints and the depth of the character of the subject portrayed is truly impressive.

Outside of the hall that housed this exhibition is a cabinet with these glass containers arranged with some mirrors to give a really cool effect.
