Mary Ellen Mark Hardback
Part of the 55s series
Acclaimed American documentary photographer Mary Ellen Mark (b. 1940) became well-known after her photographs of Bombay brothels were published in 1981 in Falkland Road, a book that became legendary and confirmed her status as one of the most prominent and provocative documentary photographers working today.
Her pictures are a celebration of humanity in its most diverse and eccentric forms - circuses, gypsy camps, children yearning for adulthood, the poor and destitute are some of her recurring themes.
This monograph is a concise introduction to her work, with a 4,000 word essay and 55 photographs and accompanying captions.
