Photographer Research - Mary Ellen Mark

Mary Ellen Mark

Mary Ellen Mark is recognised as one of today's most respected and influential photographers in the world. For over four decades, she has traveled extensively to make pictures that reflect a high degree of humanism. Her images of our world's diverse cultures have become landmarks in the field of documentary photography. She has achieved worldwide visibility through her numerous books, exhibitions and editorial magazine work. She is a contributing photographer to The New Yorker and has published photo-essays and portraits in such publications as LIFE, New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair. She is drawn to those on the fringes of society,such as the homeless, drug addicts, prostitutes and gypsies.

She is also a Stills photographer and has worked on various blockbusters

Q. What do you believe is your ultimate responsibility as a photographer?

Mary Ellen:
If you’re a documentary photographer being honest and fair is your ultimate responsibility.

I really like Mary ellen and the way she captures the fringes of society, her images are very raw and thought provoking.
