Washington, D.C. 1963. African-Americans vote for the first time

From 1963 to 1965, Freed captured the plight of African Americans;

the great struggle for racial equality within a deeply segregated, racist society

 

'The black man remains a prisoner'

Leonard Freed's iconic civil rights photos - in pictures

The Brooklyn photographer’s striking black and white images

showed an America divided.

Over 50 years on from their original publication

– and now featuring previously unseen photos – the work seems prescient

Leonard Freed    1929-2006

 

prominent photojournalist

and member of the Magnum

Photography Collective

who was known primarily

for his in-depth coverage

of African-Americans

in the era

of the civil rights movement

 

(...)

 

Mr. Freed joined

Magnum in 1972

and distinguished himself

with classic photo essays

on assignments for Life,

Look, Paris-Match,

Die Zeit, Der Spiegel,

Stern, The Sunday Times

Magazine of London,

Libération and Fortune.

 

While his coverage

of African-Americans

first made his reputation,

his photo-reportage

on the Arab-Israeli wars

of 1967 and 1973,

and his behind-the-scenes

coverage

of the New York City police

department in the late 1970s

were typical of the penetrating,

cleareyed photo essays

of Magnum photographers.

 

In 1968, he published

“Black in White America,”

a book about African-Americans

from Harlem through the South.

 

His 1980 book “Police Work”

used words and images

to document the New York police.
