Review

'Mark uncannily tiptoes around the minefield of egos and strips away the greasepaint. Heat magazine hasn't an ounce of the humanity revealed here.' World of Interiors

About the Author

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 - recurring themes include circuses, gypsy camps, children yearning for adulthood, the poor, and the destitute. Mark has the unique ability to capture gestures and expressions that translate the intense emotions of her subjects. She has received an impressive number of awards and grants for her works, including three National Endowment for the Arts grants, the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and five honorary doctorates. Mark has been photographing on film sets throughout her career and is afforded unprecedented access on film sets by the many directors who appreciate her work producing rare, behind-the-scenes images of some of the most famous figures in film history. She herself has drawing inspiration in her own work from many of the fine directors, set designers, cinematographers, and other crew she has watched - and photographed - at work. Mark lives in New York City

Format: Hardcover
One can only hope this book opens up the poignancy of Mary Ellen Mark's photography to those beyond the world of avid photographers. Although the subject matter is atypical for Mary Ellen, her ability to capture the essence of a person in their natural surroundings is unmistakable even when applied to Hollywood stars. Unlike glamour shots of these same subjects, Mary Ellen's work offers real insight to who these stars are. The included essays are a perfect compliment in that regard. And as is the case with every book she has ever done, the photography is second to none.

A famous photographer spent time behind the scenes at many movies you will recognize. She has an amazing ability to capture a moment in time and tell a story. I highly recommend this book to photography AND movie buffs
