When photo-journalist / documentary-photographer Mary Ellen Mark died on May 25th this year, Vice magazine wrote about her work that it sings truths about the humor, horror, and joy of being alive. Not only was she a stills photographer on more than a hundred films (including famous ones like Apocalypse Now and One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest), she spent a life time documenting both the less fortunate and celebrities alike, always looking for that iconic shot, but never forgetting their dignity.
