Aperture Work Scholars visit Mary Ellen Mark’s Studio
Last week, Aperture’s work scholars had the profound pleasure of touring Mary Ellen Mark’s studio and getting a chance to view prints from her extensive archive. Mark’s Studio Manager (and former Aperture Workscholar) Meredith Lue, took out prints from many of Mary Ellen’s major projects including some made with analog printing processes such as Cibachrome prints and Dye transfer prints. The group looked at images from Mark’s Streetwise series, the now infamous portrait of the Damm family, Falkland Road and portraits from her ongoing High School prom portraits. Mark answered questions about her career, the current state of photography and the ways things have changed since she started out.
