The photographs of Marti Friedlander (1928—2016)

Marti Friedlander photographed the people of New Zealand from the 1960s up until the present. By bringing an immigrant’s perspective on her adopted country she showed New Zealanders to themselves.

She is particularly renowned for her portraits of artists in the 1960s and 1970s, and for her images of the last Māori women to have received the chin moko in a customary manner.
