Leonard Freed Worldview

[Translate to English:] Florence, Italy. 1958

Leonard Freed (1929-2006) is one of the most important reporters of the twentieth century. His photographs taken in the United States, Europe and the Middle East have made the front pages of many newspapers. Member of the famous Magnum agency, he is part of the great tradition of photographic reporting. Freed is one of the most famous representatives of concerned photography.

The retrospective, created by the Musée de l'Elysée in collaboration with Magnum Photos, Paris and the Fotomuseum in The Hague, traces the career of a man who lives by and for photography. In addressing the major events of the past fifty years - including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the civil rights movement in the United States, post-war Germany and the Romanian revolution - Freed takes a penetrating and caring look at individuals inseparable from their environment.
