Archived: Marti Friedlander – Journeys

Profiling one of New Zealand's leading camera artists

In 2016, New Zealand lost one of its leading camera artists, Marti Friedlander. 

For more than six decades Marti Friedlander’s lens followed the lives of ordinary New Zealanders and helped shape an awareness of our diverse communities with an eye for the wild and spontaneous.

Although she is perhaps best known for her iconic image of a herd of sheep, Friedlander also worked offshore creating important bodies of work in the Pacific and Israel. 

'Marti Friedlander – Journeys' follows the artist outside Auckland, to the islands of the Pacific and beyond.
