Object Label:
Mary Ellen Mark (1940–2015, American) documented marginalized people and communities for over four decades. Primarily working in black- and-white photography, Mark is one of the best-known photojournalists who humanized a less familiar America and turned her lens to other parts of the world. Her powerful, contextual images insist on a specific place and environment that shapes one’s identity. Many of her best-known photographs, such as those included in Affinities and Outliers, reflect a provocative style that captures her subject’s story in a single frame.
