Amazing photographs Mar 21, 2008
This is an extraordinary collections of photos. Frees did not harm or mistreat his subjects and insisted they were not drugged. His talent was remarkable and yet he died penniless and was buried in a pauper's grave. His intuition about when to snap his shutter and his mother's hand made costumes make this a delightful snapshot into the life of a reclusive artist who committed suicide at the age of 74 (he had cancer).
