Item description for Leonard Freed: Worldview by Leonard Freed, William Ewing & Wim Van Sinderen...

Leonard Freed ranks among the giants of twentieth-century photojournalism. His work as a member of Magnum regularly graced the front pages of major newspapers around the world, as well as the covers of many international magazines. Worldview, the most ambitious collection of Freed's work ever produced, spans his full 50-year career, from coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict back through the American Civil Rights movement to post-war German reconstruction. Among other highlights, it includes a key selection of images from his New York City Police Department project that became the landmark book, Police Work. There, as throughout his career, Freed's vision was sharp, insightful and critical, but always deeply sympathetic to his fellow human beings--he was a pioneer in what has aptly been called "concerned photography." He died in 2006.

Reviews - What do customers think about Leonard Freed: Worldview?

Oh what a wonderful book  Nov 3, 2007
I was not aware of the work of Leonard Freed, and was handed this book by a salesman in an art book store. The photographs are revelatory. There is not a mediocre picture amoung them. Every photo has this amazing feel of the perfect moment caught by chance, while at the same time possessing a compositional quality that reminds one of renaissance paintings with their pyramidal compostions. There is also a humanity and a quality of pathos to many of the pictures that take them beyond the merely visual and into the realm of timeless art. I have been dipping into this book again and again, and still have not tired of it. Although such comparisons are not valid, I have just bought a book of Steichen, and found it much less fascinating when judged next to this. The reproductions are sharp, well produced, and full-page. Treat yourself if you love photography.
