About - Marti Friedlander

Her subjects have been diverse; portraiture, rural, urban and suburban scenes and encounters, both in New Zealand and other places in which she has lived or visited, such as Israel, Fiji, Tokelau and England, from where she immigrated in 1958. Her photographs of elderly Maori women with moko, artists and writers, vineyards and vintners, and children are particularly well-known, often through the books on which she has worked Moko: the art of Maori tattooing (with Michael King, 1972), Larks in Paradise: New Zealand Portraits (with James McNeish, 1974), Contemporary New Zealand Painters: Volume 1 A – M (with Jim&Mary Barr, 1980), and Pioneers of New Zealand Wine (wih Dick Scott, 2002), for instance.

Her work has been exhibited at the Photographers’ Gallery in London, the Waikato Art Museum, and in a large and celebrated retrospective at the Auckland Art Gallery in 2001, which then toured the country.

Marti Friedlander: Painting with light

Travelling through the Eglinton Valley, en route to Milford Sound, Marti Friedlander suddenly asked her husband to pull over. Stepping out into the road, she raised her camera, focused, and released the shutter. A moment was peeled from the endless spool of time and fixed in black and white. “I knew right away that I had got an iconic image,” says Friedlander. In Eglinton Valley, 1970, sheep loom out of a curtain of dust thrown up minutes earlier by a tourist bus. “Whenever I took photographs, it was always with a tremendous excitement. Now in her 80s, she still radiates the zest for life that, as a young woman, lifted her from a Jewish orphanage in London to a job as an assistant in the Kensington portrait and fashion studio of Gordon Crocker and Douglas Glass. Friedlander had found a new vocation. 2016 Queen's Birthday Honours » Auckland Grammar School.

Michael Friedländer. Portrait of Michael Friedländer. Michael Friedländer (April 29, 1833 – December 10, 1910) was an Orientalist and principal of Jews' College, London. He is best known for his English translation of Maimonides' Guide to the Perplexed, which was the most popular such translation until the more recent work of Shlomo Pines, and still remains in print. In 1856, he began studies in classical languages and mathematics at the universities of Berlin and Halle/Saale (Ph.D. 1862), and concurrently with his university studies he pursued Talmudic learning.

Settling in Berlin, he was appointed principal of the Talmud school, which position he resigned in 1865 to accept that of principal of Jews' College, London, in succession to Barnett Abrahams.
