Mary Ellen Mark, Ward 81

I have been thinking of the great photographer Mary Ellen Mark after the recent quotes I posted from her. I love her complete devotion to her craft, something we should all aspire to.

Here is a link to her wonderful early photo essay Ward 81. I bought the reissue of the book several years back, it is well worth purchasing.
