Over the course of her career, Mary Ellen Mark has produced numerous widely acclaimed and influential photographic series whose subjects have included women in the Oregon State Mental Hospital’s maximum-security ‘Ward 81’, prostitutes working in the Falkland Road brothels of Bombay, runaway children in Seattle, as well as a series focusing on the legendary Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Her photographic treatment of her subjects illuminates the difficulties of their, sometimes tragic, lives without condescension or sentimentality.
