Pablo Casals (1876–1973) The second day of Karsh’s portrait session with the elderly Spanish cellist was set in an ancient, barren abbey near his tiny home. One bare light bulb and the photographer’s strobe lights were the only illumination save a glimmer from a single, small, high window in the stone walls. Karsh studied Casals’ hands and face while he played, eyes closed, deep in concentration. Then he decided to photograph the musician from the back, immersed in the dark, cold, stone interior that throbbed, as Karsh said, “with music only he can play.”
