The Portraits of Ida Kar

March is women's history month, and while I've been pointing out some tremendous female photographers for the last few weeks, I haven't taken the time to mention the obvious connection. Well now I am, and before the month is gone I want to bring another great woman to your attention. Her name is Ida Kar, and she's the focus of an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London until the end of June. Whether you peruse her work online or in person at the museum, be sure to find the time to take a good long look. This woman was a master portraitist, a photographic pioneer, with a body of timeless work that would look at home in any portfolio today.
