Leonard Freed photography

Jewish Museum

  • Expo

Created in partnership with the American agency Magnum, this exhibition presents a retrospective of the work of the American Jewish photographer Leonard Freed (1929 - 2006).

Minorities, war, revolution, racial discrimination, work, pleasure, policing, poverty, art and daily life are at the heart of this documentary photographer's work. Leonard Freed seeks to understand the reasons that drive people to do what they do, by focusing on key moments in the world's political history that he is a committed witness to.

Come (re)discover, through the unique eyes of a major 20th century photographer, the events that have marked contemporary history.
