Perhaps encouraged by some recent shootings on my New York street, I’ve been looking at the work of Leonard Freed.He was a Magnum photographer perhaps best known for his pictures of the police going about their daily business in the 1970’s. Gritty and realistic his work reminds me of another photographer obsessed with crime, Weegee.
