                "I loved it!"

                         Jennifer Russell, editor

"... 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 to the Cuban panorama because she handles photography with an aesthetic sense and impeccable functionality, to which she adds a literary visibility."

                   Ena Curnow

                   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."

                        Alejandro Lorenzo

About the artist . . .

         A Bachelor of Arts degree as a Russian language major hardly laid ground for the creative arts, but sometimes it takes a while to find one's calling. Post university she became an international flight attendant, which afforded her large segments of free time to explore her creative interests. Taking classes throughout her careers, her artistic expression was primarily self-taught. She later taught creative design at Parsons.​

         Marcia Friedman's early careers varied from business in the entertainment field, to fashion design, and writing. Eventually, her aesthetic sense manifested itself in fine art. Initially, it was photography that segued into painting. She then integrated the two and as new mediums continue to evolve so does her creative process. 

          As a fashion designer, other designers also respected her talents. Givenchy asked her to design swimwear for his label; Calvin Klein included her swimwear in an early commercial prior to branching into the field himself, and she was a consultant to other leading brands.

 

         As a photographer and artist, galleries, foundations, corporations, and individuals have exhibited and collected 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 including Decor and Art Business News in many of their issues.

TESTIMONIALS

        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.
