Leonard Freed: Israel Magazine, 1967-1968
Brief exhibition description: Leonard Freed: Israel Magazine, 1967–1968 includes 50 black and white photographs from Freed’s estate, many of which were reproduced in Israel Magazine—an English language journal marketed to the Jewish diaspora following the Six-Day War. This is the first exhibition to examine this period of Freed’s work and the context in which these images were published.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, to Jewish immigrant parents from Minsk, in 1929, Freed is best known for his photographs documenting the Civil Rights era. He became a member of Magnum Photos in 1972. Freed died in Garrison, NY, in 2006.
