About

Fire Hydrant, Harlem, 1963 is a 19" x 13" limited edition print (number 10 of 10) by Leonard Freed. Signed verso (back of photo) by Brigitte Freed wife of the photographer, with Freed's Magnum stamp (photo back). In the image of Fire Hydrant, two children enjoy a blissful moment of Harlem summer in 1963. A city hydrant spraying water offers the children relief from the sun’s heat. They smile, as water soaks their body and collects along the street. The photo captures a moment of celebration, joy, and simplicity of childhood experienced on the steamy asphalt streets of Harlem. Leonard Freed's photographic career is punctuated by legendary documentary photo essays such as Black in White America with Fire Hydrant, Harlem remaining one of the photographer's iconic images from the series. *** Artist’s Bio: Leonard Freed (1929-2006) was an American photographer from Brooklyn, New York.
