Mary Ellen Mark

Mary Ellen Mark

1940 – 2015


Mary Ellen Mark’s empathy, humanity, penetrating vision, and commitment to those she photographed and their stories distinguished both her work, and her voice as a photographer. Everything about her work was personal – never judgmental – intimate, while at the same time speaking to larger truths about otherness, poverty, and class.
