About

This Leonard Freed, City Prison, is a gelatin silver, signed (verso) by the photographer, vintage print. It is an iconic Freed print from the photographer's Black in White America series. Black in White America contributed to Freed's becoming one of the best social documentary photographers of all time. In this photo, Freed documents prisons from the inside from 1963-1965, capturing for the series Black in White America the politics of the country and the anxiety of people of color and discriminated people. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Leonard Freed worked as a freelance photographer from 1961 onwards. Magnum photographer Freed traveled widely, photographing African Americans, Israel (1967-68, 1973), and the New York City police department (1972-79). Freed’s coverage of the American civil rights movement made him famous, but he also produced many other photo essays on New York, Italy, and Germany. Leonard Freed died in 2006.
