" This photographic portrait made Yousuf Karsh's name. Armenian-born Karsh (1908-2002) was working as a photographer in Ottowa when he came to the notice of the Canadian Prime Minister. The story is often told of how Karsh created this famous portrait of Winston Churchill during the early years of World War II. Churchill, the British Prime Minister, had just addressed the Canadian Parliament and Karsh was there to record one of the century's great leaders. "He was in no mood for portraiture and two minutes were all that he would allow me as he passed from the House of Commons chamber to an anteroom," said Karsh. Churchill marched into the room scowling, "regarding my camera as he might regard the German enemy." His expression suited Karsh perfectly, but the cigar stuck between his teeth seemed incompatible with such a solemn and formal occasion. "Instinctively, I removed the cigar. At this the Churchillian scowl deepened, the head was thrust forward belligerently, and the hand placed on the hip in an attitude of anger". The image captured Churchill and the England of the time perfectly, defiant and unconquerable. Churchill later said to him, "You can even make a roaring lion stand still to be photographed".
