Leonard Freed
Rome, Italy, Black and White Photography, Large Estate Print

2000

About the Item

A gelatin silver estate print, 24" x 20" from the Freed archive, Rome, Italy, 2000 by Leonard Freed is a black and white contemporary photograph focused on an unexpected, poetic, and beautiful classical sculpture in the stairwell of a modest Roman dwelling. Leonard Freed discovered Little Italy in New York City early in his career and was charmed equally by Italians and their country of origin. The photographer made numerous trips to Italy, especially to Rome and Naples, capturing everyday life, love, sadness, joy of family gatherings, food and leisure. Freed's photographs ultimately reflect the “Italian spirit,” the art of enjoying the moment, the culture and lifestyle of a Latin country. Provenance: Freed Estate. Print is stamped and signed on verso (back of photograph) by Brigitte Freed, wife of the photographer. *** Artist’s Bio: Leonard Freed (1929-2006) was an American photographer from Brooklyn, New York. His "Black in White America" series made him known as a documentarian, a social documentary photographer. Freed worked as a freelance photographer from 1961 onwards and as a Magnum photographer Freed traveled widely abroad and, in the US, photographing African Americans (1964-65), events in Israel (1967-68, 1973), and the New York City police department (1972-79). Freed's coverage of the American civil rights movement is well-known as are his photo essays on New York, Italy, Germany, The Kate Series, among others. *** Available at 99Prints NYC an online art marketplace for today’s collector of contemporary art, works on paper, original and limited edition photography.
