Beach, Italy, 1984 by Leonard Freed is an 8" x 10" black and white photograph, a gelatin silver RC press print from the Freed archive (provenance), signed verso (on back) by the photographer.

Leonard Freed discovered Little Italy in New York City early in his career and was charmed equally by Italians and their country of origin. The photographer made numerous trips to Italy, especially to Rome and Naples, capturing everyday life, love, sadness, joy of family gatherings, food and leisure. Freed's photographs ultimately reflect the “Italian spirit,” the art of enjoying the moment, the culture and lifestyle of a Latin country.
