Mary Ellen Mark


30.08.2002 - 06.10.2002


Mary Ellen Mark’s works follow the American tradition of social documentary photography. Her powerfully expressive portraits and photo reports document life in the United States in an impressive way. They do not beautify anything but are still full of sympathy and humanity. The winner of many prizes has published many books and works almost exclusively in black and white. 60 photographs made between 1965 and 1991 can be seen.
