Gadget frenzy at CES 2007 stressing you out? Take a break, please. Visit the Kresge Art Museum and view some soothingly reassuring photographs from generations back.
The Kresge Art Museum at Michigan State University (MSU) is hosting Yousuf Karsh Photographs, from January 8 to March 18, 2007. You may draw strength from the pillars of the 20th century there: Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein, Ernest Hemingway, Andy Warhol, Georgia Oâ€™Keeffe, and Frank Lloyd Wright, all photographed by the Armenian-born Canadian legend.
How did he get Churchill to pose with such a defiant scowl? The story is told that the photographer took Churchillâ€™s cigar to the vehement objection of the Prime Minister, and at the very precise moment clicked his camera. Timing, my boy, timing.
Michigan too far for you? Well, the museumâ€™s website is the next best thing. The magic of the Web will take you there.
