In the past few days we have lost two leading figures in the cultural life of New Zealand; photographer Marti Friedlander and novelist, playwright and biographer Sir James McNeish who both passed away this month.

They worked together on the iconic 1974 book of black and white photographs of New Zealanders, 'Larks in Paradise' - her pictures of New Zealanders and his text. 

We explore sound recordings by both of them in our archives with Sarah Johnston from Nga Taonga Sound & Vision.
