“The Life and Work of Mary Ellen Mark”

A Lecture by Meredith Lue

 

Mary Ellen Mark was an American master photojournalist and portrait photographer. Please join us for a discussion of her work and life. For more than four decades, Mark was recognized as one of our most respected and influential photographers. Her images of the world's diverse cultures have become landmarks in the field of documentary photography. Her portrayals of Mother Teresa, Indian circuses and brothels in Mumbai were the product of many years of work in India. Her photo essay on runaway children in Seattle became the basis of the Academy Award-nominated film Streetwise. Mark passed away on May 25, 2015.

Meredith Lue started working for Mary Ellen and her husband, director Martin Bell, in 1998. As the library manager, she mostly works with Mark’s archive of images, handling everything from exhibitions to publications to image syndication as well as production work for special projects. Lue continues to work with Bell on his films, in addition to promoting Mark’s work.
