LEONARD FREED
[b.1929] American documentary photographer
Photography is like life... What does it all mean? I don't know - but you get an impression, a feeling.... An impression of walking through the street, walking through the park, walking through life. I'm very suspicious of people who say they know what it means. - Leonard Freed

..a good photograph must have the element of good design: Everything within the photograph has to be essential. It's never like a painting where you can have it perfect. It shouldn't be absolutely perfect. That would kill it. - Leonard Freed

Ultimately photography is about who you are. It’s the seeking of truth in relation to yourself. And seeking truth becomes a habit. - Leonard Freed

Photographing is an emotional thing, a graceful thing. Photography allows me to wander with a purpose. - Leonard Freed

When I photograph, I am always relating things to one another. Photography shows the connection between things, how they relate. - Leonard Freed

Men die, heroically or fruitlessly, but man carries on. In Israel it is the same: the farmer must till the fields, the young must make love, and the photographer must, I suppose, be ready to photograph it all. - Leonard Freed
