Kate #13, is from the Kate series, 2002 by American photographer Leonard Freed is a signed, 8" x 10" (small format) black and white photograph (gelatin silver), stamped "vintage" on verso (back of photo) by the Freed estate, and "hand printed" by the photographer.

A photographer herself, model and yogini Kate remains complicit in striking dramatic nude poses for Freed. In this image Kate remains theatrical on a hilltop cliff above the sea. Her body shape and form blend with the lines and angles of the setting. Freed captures both playfulness and sensuality of a self-possessed woman.

The photo series Kate became a welcome reprieve for Freed who during a long photo career tackled social-documentary for which he became well-known in the US and abroad.
