Sadly this week American photographer Mary Ellen Mark passed away. She was a truly dedicated photographer, portraiture, photojournalism and advertising she tackled them all. Her photographs appeared in all the major magazines, in many books and exhibitions. She often worked with people who were “away from mainstream society and toward its more interesting, often troubled fringes” as Wikipedia describes her. If you are not familiar with her work do check out her website at Mary Ellen Mark it’s well worth a visit to see her work and learn more about her.
