Hitting Your Mark
May/June 2000
Mary Ellen Mark


What makes photographer Mary Ellen Mark so unique is her ability to show gritty reality with understanding and compassionate insight, a rare skill that she applies to both the anonymous and celebrated subject she photographs. To open on May 13, The Philadelphia Museum of Art is staging a retrospective of a four-city tour. The exhibition features images included in Aperture`s recently published book, Mary Ellen Mark: American Odessey. For additional information visit
