Kate #4, 2002 by American photographer Leonard Freed is in the photographer's series "Kate." This is an 11" x 14" gelatin silver photograph signed verso (back of photo) by the Freed estate.

A study of a female nude, model Kate is a photographer and yogini who is self-possessed in playful poses. Covering her face with piled high hair for this study, Kate is transformed, sculpturally. Aesthetic shapes define the image. The self-assigned photo series on Kate became a welcome reprieve for Leonard Freed who during a long photo career tackled subjects for which he became well-known as a social-documentary photographer in the USA.
