Marti Friedlander Photographs accompanied the eponymous exhibition at the Auckland Art Gallery. There have only been two previous one-person exhibitions of Marti Friedlander's photographs in New Zealand-at the Wynyard Tavern, Symonds Street, Auckland in 1966, and at the Waikato Art Museum in 1975. Her work, though, as it has been published in books, magazines, newspapers and exhibition catalogues, has been well-known and widely seen since the mid 1960s. Nevertheless, the Auckland Art Gallery show, curated by Ron Brownson, with 150 photographs from 1957 to 1986, provided the opportunity to see the photographs as they have never been seen before-the first survey of her work and career, with unique, large new prints toned with gold, of superb quality, made expressly for the exhibition by Mark Adams and Haru Sameshima. This was a classic retrospective: one that clearly established the diversity, complexity, high quality and compelling presence of an artist's works, individually and collectively; and asserted that the artist is one of the best practitioners in this country in her medium and genre.
