Diver, Dortmund, Germany, 1965 by Leonard Freed is a 16” x 20” gelatin silver print, signed and stamped (on back of photo) by the widow Brigitte Freed. This contemporary photograph illustrates Leonard Freed's mastery as a photographer, his ability to translate the 'decisive moment', with diver as subject captured in mid-air. A mysterious and transcendent image perhaps that reveals, in natural light, the agility of a diver in mid-flight.

Provenance: Freed Estate
