Most Influential Woman Photographer
Mary Ellen Mark
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.
