    Photographer and Documentarian Mary Ellen Mark Dies at 75

    Photo: Corbis Mary Ellen Mark, one of the world’s greatest documentarians, died in Manhattan on Monday. Mark became enchanted by photography as a student at the University of Pennsylvania and went on to travel the world gathering the trust of the people she met along the way and somehow finding the humanity in rather inhumane conditions, gravitating toward people who were generally regarded as outcasts. In addition to her photographs, Streetwise became a documentary that was directed by her husband and longtime creative collaborator Martin Bell. One look at her website and you’ll notice the encyclopedic cataloging of celebrity shoots ranging from President Bill Clinton to Christy Turlington.
