Photographer Mary Ellen Mark Dies

American photo artist dies at age of 75.

On Monday, Mary Ellen Mark, the celebrated American photojournalist and portraitist, has died in New York.

During her 40-years career she has published 18 photo books, and her photos were often published in Life, New York Times, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair. Mark became famous after publishing in 1988 a photo story about Tiny, a prostitute from Seattle.

Mark took photos of famous people as well as people who live below the poverty line, but the subject she was most interested in was children. She documented their life, revealing psychological and social problems they face. Her last project was devoted to 300 teenagers dressed up for their proms.
