Mary Ellen Mark is one of the most respected and loved documentary photographers in the world. Her photographs of world cultures, subcultures, and personalities are landmarks in the field. Mark has achieved worldwide visibility through her numerous photo-essays and portraits in such magazines as The New Yorker, New York Times Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Stern, Details, Allure, Rolling Stone, Vogue, US, Life, and the London Sunday Times Magazine.

Mark has published fourteen books including the most recent Seen Behind the Scene: Forty Years of Photographing on Set, (Phaidon, November 2008), Falkland Road, Mother Teresa’s Mission of Charity in Calcutta, A Cry for Help, Indian Circus, Mary Ellen Mark: 25 Years, American Odyssey, and Twins.
