Riassunto: Book by Mary Ellen Mark
From Publishers Weekly:
Mark ( Streetwise ) is one of the most popular and highly regarded documentary photographers working today. Her monograph contains, among others, photos of famine victims in Ethiopia, the white ruling-class of Zimbabwe after its government was ousted, and, probably her most famous series, prostitutes along Bombay's Falkland Road. In an interview that forms the book's text, she describes her working process and her commitment to the craft, especially to her subjects. "I photograph people who are the victims of society, because I care about them," she says. Mark's pictures are impressive and shocking--in a word, they are art, though they also raise issues concerning exploitation of human misery. Asked whether she feels she is using her subjects, the photographer discusses the difficulty of knowing "when you can and when you cannot take a picture."p. 13 Mark's photographs emphasize the humanity of her subjects--"I immediately try to make a relationship with the people I'm photographing"--which renders her pictures all the more emotionally engaging to viewers.

Mary Ellen Mark (1940 - 2015) was an American photographer known for her photojournalism, documentary photography, portraiture and advertising photography. She photographed people who were 'away from mainstream society and toward its more interesting, often troubled fringes.' Mark had 18 collections of her work published, most notably Streetwise and Ward 81. Her work was exhibited at galleries and museums worldwide and widely published in Life, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, New York Times and Vanity Fair. She was a member of Magnum Photos between 1977 and 1981. She received numerous accolades, including three Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards, three fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the 2014 Lifetime Achievement in Photography Award from the George Eastman House and the Outstanding Contribution Photography Award from the World Photography Organisation.
