Leonard Freed’s stamped vintage (verso), 16" x 20", gelatin silver print, Kate #14, is from the Kate series, 2002. A photographer herself, model Kate remains complicit in striking dramatic poses for the nude series by Freed. In this image Kate is supine, arms outstretched, body arched on the backside of a man in the yoga pose downward dog. On the edge of a cliff with the ebb and flow of the sea and waves many feet below, the couple rest precariously in balance above swirling waters. Kate's trust in the universe, a face of abandon, reveals youthful fearlessness and love of freedom. Freed captures a self-possessed modern woman and a dance of sorts that Kate shares with a male partner on the edge of time.
