Random Images: Mary Ellen Mark

(Last Updated On: January 31, 2016)

A couple year ago, Pip posted an image of Christina Ricci.  At the time, he was not aware that it was a photograph by Mary Ellen Mark (1940–2015) until a reader brought it to his attention.  The image below was also in his collection and I feel it deserves attention as well.  This is timely not only because Mark passed away last year, but at the time of this writing, it was the featured image of her official website.

  1. Oh – I hadn’t realised that Mary Ellen Mark had died – she’s one of the photographers who opened my eyes to the medium’s power and poetry.

    I think an article on her work on the Indian circuses would be good for PiP – there’s one little girl called ‘Pinkie’ who features in several photos in that series and who is very special and stunningly beautiful.
