Shortly following the opening of the photography exhibit “Yousuf Karsh: Icons of the XXth Century,” its curator Jerry Fielder, sat down with us to discuss this famous portrait photographer and this new exhibit. Fielder has worked in connection to Karsh and his photography for over 35 years, and has curated exhibits world-wide. The Mona Bismarck American Center for art & culture, where the exhibit is on display until January 26, 2014, kindly opened their doors and allowed us to conduct the following interview in public – a first for our web-magazine! The interview begins in a normal one-to-one fashion and the second half is dedicated to questions from the audience.
