Kate, from the Kate series, Garrison, New York, 2002 by American photographer Leonard Freed is an 11” x 14” gelatin silver photograph signed verso (on back of photo) by the estate.

In the Hudson Valley town Garrison in New York State, Leonard Freed photographed Kate, a woman photographer, who posed nude with an enigmatic smile and curly lion mane. Also a yogini Kate communicated playfulness, freedom, and living in the moment. 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.
