Earn: saying “We have always admired her work which are very provocative and makes you think. Beyond being a good photographer, she was also a humanist. ” In this collection, we selected four pieces, that range from highlighting social issues of the time to adorable images.

“Tiny in Halloween costume”(Seattle,1983)
A photograph of Tiny, the 13-year-old girl mentioned above, represents Mary Ellen’s work. What thoughts were going through her head as she posed and stared at the camera vaguely. Tiny’s road to becoming a troubled, drug-addicted single mother of 10, was documented in the album Tiny, Streetwise Revived.

Earn: “A 13 year old street kid / teenager named Tiny from Seattle that Mary Ellen Mark had a lifelong friendship with. The photo is very iconic. It can be seen on the cover of the book Streetwise.”
