Karsh, Yousuf
Original Gelatin Silver Print Portrait Photograph of Mangosuthu Buthelezi]
The Photographer, [Np, 1963. Original glossy double-weight gelatin silver print from negative, 14 x 11" (inclusive of margins). Captioned in pencil on verso. About fine. An original print of one of the superb photographs taken by Yousuf Karsh on location in South Africa during the filming of the 1964 Diamond Films production, ZULU, directed by Cy Endfield. Karsh's invitation to join the production and photograph the cast and locale resulted in a sequence of photographs of a very high order. The present image, an imposing portrait of future political leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi in character as Zulu King Cetshwayo kaMpande, shows the subject in full ceremonial garb, seated in a substantial throne-like setting. The image is identified as "No. 5-31" in the series. Although this project is not as widely known as Karsh's formal portraiture, examples of the resulting images have featured prominently in both museum and print retrospectives of his career.
