"... 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."

Welcome to my site
Along the way I had various careers in travel, the entertainment business, fashion design, writing, photography, and art, and although I never had a grand plan, my interests simply led me here: creating art and writing. A far cry from my university days when I received a BA as a Russian language major.
My art, too, has evolved. From fine art photography to painting, to integrating the two, and then incorporating digitization and other media, it is what it is as you see it here. Galleries, foundations, corporations, and individuals have exhibited and owned my work. Although I used to have a brick and mortar gallery, I now offer it in this art gallery online.
I thank Wynn Resorts/Las Vegas; Atlantis Resort/Bahamas, Princess Cruises, McGraw Hill Publishers, and the other corporate buyers, and galleries, along with Decor and Art Business News and the other magazines and newspapers that have expressed appreciation for my work. And my very special thanks to all my individual and business clients who have purchased my art through the years. I invite you all to visit my new work online and welcome both new and old clients alike.

When I was 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.
