Office Party, New York City, 1966 by Leonard Freed is a gelatin silver later print, 16” x 20”, signed verso (on back) by the photographer.
Freed enjoyed storytelling, in all its forms. Here he captures the Mad Men zeitgeist of the 1960s when men in office attire, slim suits, and women with big blonde hair let loose at office parties.
