Because actual information from Karsh himself rarely goes beyond these simplified stories, much of the information is simply the thoughts of Mr. Travis. He does attempt to glean information from interviews by/with one of Karsh's principle assistants. Some of Travis' commentary I appreciated but other parts of it simply seemed to be conjecture.

    4. Good book of photographs from Karsh. The comments on each portrait from the photographer are not necessarily revealing in terms of technique or rapport with the subject. Just anecdotes about the session. The commentary from Travis is helpful but a bit academic for my taste.
