Leonard Freed's stamped vintage (verso), 14" x 11," gelatin silver signed and hand-printed by Freed, Kate Standing, is from the Kate series, 2002. A photographer herself, model Kate remains complicit in striking dramatic poses for the nude series. In this image Kate bending into the body of a silhouetted man, the lover. In what feels like an abandoned apartment, the couple rest precariously in balance wedged between two windows. Kate's body language, in a pose reminiscent of a modern dancer, she imparts a youthful tension between the desire for love and freedom. American photographer Leonard Freed captures a self-possessed modern woman and a dance of sorts that Kate shares with a male partner on the edge of time.
