Leonard Freed (1929-2006)

Today The Guardian ran this obituary for documentary photographer Leaonard Freed. Here is the obituary from The New York Times. Freed was a member of the Magnum photo agency and well know for his images of the civil rights movement in the United States. Here are a couple of examaples of his work.

“Harlem, New York, U.S.A.” (1963)

Martin Luther King, Jr. In A Motorcade Is Thronged By Supporters, Baltimore, Oct. 31, 1965
