Mary Ellen Mark

September 15, 2008

Mary Ellen Mark is also surely one of my favorite photographers. She has a talent to build up a relationship to the people she is working with that really translates into her photography. Let it be formal style portraiture or 35mm documentaries… the images seem to show the inner self of the portrayed people. Very emotional, moving, capturing the imagination of the viewer.

Mary Ellen Mark is also standing out as a photographer with a social conscience. Her documentary publications about drug addicted teenagers in America are remarkable. And the work she did in India about circus artists, or her photographic documentation about brothels in Bombay, are just breathtaking. With this she has managed to change my personal view on the world.
