Couple, Rome, Italy 2000 by Leonard Freed is a 10" x 8" black and white photograph, stamped by the Freed archive “vintage,” a gelatin silver press print (RC) signed verso (on back) by the photographer.

Leonard Freed discovered Little Italy in New York City early in his career and was charmed by Italians and their country of origin. From that moment on he made numerous trips to Italy, especially to Rome and Naples, photographing everyday life, love, sadness, joy of family gatherings, food and leisure. American photographer Leonard Freed's photographs capture the “Italian spirit,” the art of enjoying the moment, and the culture and lifestyle of Italy, a country of great beauty and humanity.
