Story: Friedlander, Marti

Pub, South Island, 1967

Pub, South Island, 1967

As an immigrant, Marti Friedlander was in a position to visualise aspects of social relations that most New Zealand-born people did not see – or did not want to see. This image of a solitary man in a crowded small-town South Island pub, his fist clenched, explosive with latent tension, portrays both an individual and a widely shared social condition.
