In 2014 Erik Jensen contacted Maxine Beneba Clarke and convinced her to write creative portraits for a new national newspaper, THE SATURDAY PAPER. The next four years were a journalistic baptism of fire. She came face to face with Prime Minister Tony Abbott; wrote a love letter to Prince; trolled a local racist fried chicken eatery; held an audience with the Australian Ambassador to China; covertly profiled One Plus One presenter Jane Hutcheon; shared the stage with writer Roxane Gay; sipped green tea with dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, and exchange emails with President Obama. These are The Saturday Portraits.
