During the 1990s Friend's work in Kosovo focused on the repression of Kosovo Albanians under the Milosevic regime, and she later explored the complexities of the aftermath of the Kosovo conflict in her book 'No Place Like Home: Echoes from Kosovo' (Midnight Editions, USA, 2001). From 2003-2007 she worked towards an exhibition 'Border Country', documenting immigration detainees through sound and image. The solo exhibition opened at Belfast Exposed Photography, Northern Ireland in 2007 and toured to three further UK galleries. It opens at Gallery 44, Centre for Contemporary Photography, Toronto, Canada on 14 September 2010. 'Border Country' was also selected as one of the ten best works submitted for the European Central Bank Annual Photography Award 2008 'Europe' competition and is part of the award's touring show in Germany. Friend's book 'Border Country' (including audio CD) was published in November 2007 and was featured in Guardian Society (online) in 2008.
