"... CUBA; The Special Period provides a rich documentary portrait of the Cuban people and the way they live their lives."
AB Bookman's Weekly
"... In an eloquent way, Marcia Friedman has managed to bear witness o the Cuban panorama because she handles photography with an aesthetic sense and impeccable functionality, to which she adds a literary visibility."
Diario Las Américas
,"... Rauschenberg's creations suffered from a disconnection from reality... Friedman's work raises the curtains that conceal what lies hidden in the everyday challenges faced by Cubans. In its pages, North American photography enthusiasts will find the answers to many questions raised by this tragic period within the last bastion of orthodox communism in the western hemisphere."

About the artist . . .
From a varied background with careers in travel, the entertainment business, fashion design, interior design, and writing Marcia Friedman's creative and aesthetic sense eventually manifested itself in fine art. Her photography segued into painting. She then integrated the two, and as new mediums evolved so did her work incorporating digital and other mediums.
Throughout the years galleries, foundations, corporations, and individuals have exhibited and owned her work. Some of her better-known corporate clients such as Wynn Resorts/Las Vegas; Atlantis Resort/Bahamas, Princess Cruises, McGraw Hill Publishers have featured her work as well as major art magazines Decor and Art Business News in many of their issues.
Her work can be purchased on this virtual gallery.

As CMO of Atlantis I commissioned Marcia Friedman to create special art for the resort on a unique product she also created specifically for us. Not only was the work beautiful, but she was a pleasure to work with.

Marcia's art that she made for the lobby of our law offices continues to get rave reviews. I highly recommend her for her artistic talents and her professionalism.

It was delightful working with Marcia on the special artwork she did when we refurbished our resort. We love her work and have been collecting it for years.
