Yousuf Kansh In Search of Greatness Yousuf Karsh,the Canadian portrait artist who photographed many of the most influential figures of the th century,died in a Boston hospital on July ,after complications following surgery.He was 93.Working from a studio in Ottawa,Karsh produced famous portraits of such subjects as Winston Churchill,John F.Kennedy,Nikita Khrushchev,Fidel Castro,Ernest Hemingway and Albert Einstein.Actually he has become almost as famous as his legendary1) subjects.In the latest edition of Who's Who,which listed the most notable people of the last century,Karsh was the only Canadian of the 0 famous people listed--51 of whom Karsh had photographed.Karsh was praised as a master portraitist,often working in black and white,influenced by great painters of the past.He was famous talking to his subjects as he was getting the shot's composition just right,asking them questions and putting them at ease.He confesses that he continues to feel more challenged when “portraying) true greatness adequately with my camera.” In preparation,he s as much as he can about the person bee the sitting,but avoids having a preconceived3) idea of how he would photograph the subject.Rather he seeks,as he wrote in Karsh Portfolio in 1967,to capture the “essential element which has made them great,”explaining,“All I know is that within every man and woman a secret is hidden,and as a photographer it is my task to reveal it if I can.The revelation,if it comes at all,will come in a small fraction of a second with an unconscious gesture,a gleam of the eye,a brief lifting of the mask that all human swear to conceal their innermost) selves from the world.In that fleeting interval of opporty the photographer must act or lose his prize.”Yousuf Karsh was born in Armenia in 19 and grew up under the horrors of the Armenian massacres5).His photographer uncle,George Nakash,brought him to Canada in 19 and sent him to Boston in 19 to apprentice with John Garo,an outstanding photographer.He not only taught Karsh the technical processes used by photographic artists of the period but also prepared him to think himself and evolve his own distinctive interpretations.Four years later,he set up his studio in Ottawa.In December of 191,his memorable portrait of a glowering,defiant6) Winston Churchill,which symbolized Britain's indomitable7) wartime courage,brought Karsh into international prominence.Canada's Prime Minister Mackenzie King arranged Karsh to photograph Churchill following Churchill's speech in the House of Commons.Not ewarned,Churchill lit up a cigar and growled,“Why was I not told of this?”but consented to a brief session.Karsh asked him to remove the cigar and,when he didn't,stepped ward and gently removed it with the comment,“give me,Sir.”Churchill glowered as the shot was taken,then permitted Karsh to take still another,jokingly commenting,“You can even make a roaring lion stand still to be photographed.”The Churchill portrait has since app eared in publications and on commemorative8) stamps all over the world.Karsh traveled to London in 193 with his portable studio--an 8× view camera and many studio lamps to photograph such notables as George Bernard Shaw,the Archbishop of Canterbury,and the royal family.Years later these timeless photographs are joined by portraits of such statesmen,artists,and movie stars as Laurence Olivier ,Pablo Picasso,Frank Lloyd Wright,and Clark Gable.All these portraits illustrate Karsh's ability to capture the essence of his sitter9). 1956。

  • 常用英语口语之同情安慰 -- :55: 来源: 常用英语口语之同情安慰1.What a pity!真可惜!.What a shame!真遗憾!3.That's really too bad.那真是太槽糕了.I'm very sorry to hear that.听到那消息,我真难过5.May he rest in peace.愿他安息6.Oh, bad luck.哦,真不走运7.Bless you!愿上帝保佑你8.I do feel sorry him.我真的很难过9.Oh, I'm sorry to hear that.哦,听到这个消息我很遗憾I was very sorry to hear about your father.听到有关你父亲的事,我真难过.I believe if you want to get a job, that's very easy.我相信你很容易就能得到一份工作的.I'm so sorry about the great loss, but please do take care of yourself.对你痛失亲人我万分难过,请千万保重 常用英语口语。
  • 小笨霖英语笔记3集 -01-7 00::1 来源: 中国人和外国人有一点很像, 就是许愿, 在美国不论在何处看到大大小小的池子, 里面多半有许愿人所丢的铜板. 不过老美许愿的方式和我们不太一样. (但是小气是一样的, 都是面额最小的 1cent 居多), 正确的许愿方式是: Throw coin over your shoulder. 也就是说, 你要背对池子, 把铜板从你的肩膀上丢到池子里, 下次再去许愿时不要忘了喔. 在这一集笔记中, 我特别挑出一些念起来有押韵而且在日常生活中常常会用到的一些词汇, 希望各位会喜欢.1. I just had a super-duper meal in the resturant.我刚刚在餐厅吃了一顿超级大餐.Super-duper 是一种加强语法的说法, 程度上比 Super 还要再高一级. 比方说我要跟老美说我的网页有多棒, 我就可以说, Welcome to my super-duper website! 所以建议一下综艺节目 Super Suday 改名成 Super-duper sunday 可能会有助于收视率的提升.. I can't believe you said this is a tiny-little mistake.我不敢相信你说这是微不足道的错误.跟 Super-duper 正好对等, 当你要特别强调某件东西很小很小时, 就可以用 tiny-little 来形容. 比方说蚂蚁好了, 你就可以用 tiny-little 来形容, 例如: Hey! Look at those tiny-little creatures. 不过我最常听到的 tiny-little 多半是跟 mistake 连用. 一个人为了强调自己犯的错其实没什么大不了的, 就可以说 It is just a tiny-little mistake.3. Stick and stone.我不认为你的话会伤了我.这是一句很长的英文句子的开头, 原文是这样的. Stick and stone can break my bones, but words can never hurt me. 意思是, 石头和棍子能够打断我的骨头, 可是你的话一点也伤不到我. 这跟中文的意思是不是正好相反? 在中文里我们认为一个人的话比真实的武器还会伤人的, 但是在英文中却说, 只有棍子和石头才能伤的了我, 你的话却不能. 所以你跟别人说 stick and stone 就是告诉别人, 我对你的话是完全免疫的.. I will never ever do it again.我绝不会再犯同样的错误了.这句话其实光说 I will never do it again 也就可以了, 但是为了强调这个 never, 他们老美喜欢说成, I will never ever do it again. 表示从今以后绝不会再犯. 有次跟几个老美相约出去玩, 结果有人迟到, 他就拼命地说, Sorry, I will never ever do it again.5. Okey-Dokey 'oki'doki好, 没问题.okey-dokey 跟我们平常口语上常用的 OK 是一模一样的, 但不知为什么理由, 或许是为了强调吧, 有些人就喜欢说成 okey-dokey. 另外有一点值得一提, 有些人觉的 OK 还不够省略, 它们就只说 K. 有一次在网路上跟一个老美聊天, 他一直跟我说 K 我觉的很奇怪, 后来我问别人才知道 K 就是 OK. 的意思.6. She is willy-nilly.她非常地犹豫不决.Willy-nilly 就是 will or not 的另一种说法, 所以当形容词用就是形容一个人一下子要 (willwilly) 一下子不要 (notnilly) 但是这种说法其实蛮少用的, 还不见的每一个老美都会知道哩.7. Drive on the parkway, Park on the driveway.开在马路上, 停在停车道上.这句话用中文感受不出它有意思的地方. 美国有很多公路都叫什么 parkway, 如 Atlanta 就有一条 Cobb parkway, 而自家院子都会有一条小路通往马路, 这条小路就叫 driveway, 如果没有车库, 老美就会把车停在 driveway 上. 有趣的是, park 原本是停车的意思, 所以 parkway 应该是停车的地方, 但实际上它却是行车的大马路, driveway 应该是开车的地方, 但却成了停车的小路. 有空的人可以去考考老美为什么他们这样命名.8. Do you have the walkie-talkie?你有没有手提式无线电机啊?Walkie-talkie 依照我们之前的经验, wakie-talkie 就是 walk and talk 的意思, 在大哥大还没有发现的年代里, 那种手提式的无线话机相信是很酷的吧, 但现在大家人手一只大哥大, walkie-talkie 似乎就没什么了.9. See you later, alligator.再见.有一首歌就叫 See you later, alligator. Alligator 是指产在美国东南部一种很像鳄鱼但嘴巴较短的动物, 在这句话里 allegator 完全没有意思, 只是为了让整句话听起来较押韵而已. 所以这句话就只有 see you later 的意思.. In a while, crocodile.再见了.如果人家说 See you later, alligator, 那你要怎么接话? 就是 In a while, crocodile. Crocodile 在这里指的就是鳄鱼, 所以这二句话对仗和押韵兼而有之, 赶紧学起来.今天刚好是我离出国满一年的日子喔.... 开始有点想家了.小笨霖 9.5 笔记 英语 就是 所以。
  • 把你的爱告诉你所爱着的人们,把握住每一个表达机会千万记住:度量生命的不是呼吸的次数,而是那些最最难忘的时刻 Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctor worry about them. That's why you pay himher. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. "An idle mind is the devil's workshop. And the devil's name is Alzheimer's." Enjoy the simple things. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp breath. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge. Cherish your health If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, to the next country, to a eign country, but NOT to where the guilt is. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opporty. AND ALWAYS REMEMBER Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. 96。
