Larks In A Paradise – New Zealand Portraits - Marti Friedlander & James Mcneish

HB, 1974, 113 pages, Cover a bit 'smudgey', small tear on back (see photo). Aging to page edges. Iniitials crosed out inside. Happy to combine postage.


Everybody has preconceptions about New Zealand. Sheep. Beaches. Rural England turned Polynesia. A sunny, forgotten Arcady – remote, empty and irrelevant.

‘Larks in a Paradise’ looks deeper. What it finds – what Marti Friedlander found with her camera and James McNeish in his recorded ‘conversations’ – is something very different: a land of contradictions, of glorious exhilarating paradox.

Marti Friedlander, like Cartier-Bresson, has the gift of seeing beyond the ordinary; James McNeish has the gift of listing and recording in private what is seldom if ever said in public. ‘Together they have produced an extraordinary document – a mirror of the private face of New Zealand which is at once sad and funny, outrageous, revealing, intensely human. The first self-portrait attempted of a land and its people.
