A long-time contributor to Photo Life magazine, Richard pursues photography as a medium of visual expression. He is best known for his unique vision with a personal style characterized by a strong sense of composition, colour and the use of light. His work combines an architectural love of geometry, pattern and texture with a painter’s sensitivity to colour, light and composition.
He attended multi-grade (one-room) schools in Grey’s Mills and Long Reach, and high school at Macdonald Consolidated School in Kingston. He graduated with a B.A. (Honours: Philosophy) from Acadia University, Wolfville, Nova Scotia, in 1959. His master’s thesis was “Still Photography As A Medium Of Religious Expression.” While in New York, Freeman studied photography and visual design privately with Dr. Helen Manzer.
