Tonight's free lecture with Mary Ellen Mark's is presented in conjunction with her first solo exhibition in Portland at Blue Sky Gallery
, featuring original prints from three remarkable bodies of work: Falkland Road, Indian Circus, and Ward 81 (made at the Oregon State Hospital in Salem in the mid-1970s). It's one of the best shows in Portland right now so don't miss this.
According to the Press Release,"Mary Ellen Mark is today recognized as one of America's most respected and influential photographers. She is a contributing photographer to The New Yorker and has published photo-essays and portraits in such publications as LIFE, New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair. For over four decades, she has traveled extensively to make pictures that reflect a high degree of humanism. A photo essay on runaway children in Seattle became the basis of the Academy Award-nominated film Streetwise (1984), directed and photographed by her husband, Martin Bell."
