From a childhood in London's East End to half a century in New Zealand photographing wine-makers, artists, children and kuia, Marti Friedlander has lived a rich life - one defined by the art of looking.
In Self-Portrait, Marti tells her story for the first time.
As forthright and revealing in words as in her photographs, she tells of growing up in London orphanages, being Jewish, working in a Kensington photography studio, marrying a New Zealander and moving across the world to a challenging new country.
Here she began to photograph the ordinary and the extraordinary, protests and politicians, balloons and beaches - capturing on film the transformation of New Zealand life over more than fifty years.
This book is a rich meditation on one woman's photographic journey through the twentieth century.
