Mary Ellen Mark

In 1986 Mary Ellen Mark's "Mother Teresa and Calcutta" photographs were exhibited at Northlight Gallery at ASU where I was a student.  To the best of my memory I was on the gallery staff that semester as part of my studies there at ASU.   The prints were, and are amazing and we were lucky to have her come lecture in conjunction with the opening.  Documentary Photography lost one of its great photographers when she passed away on May 25th at the age of 75.  I know I am late getting this post up, the last few months have been a battle, but I wanted to make sure I put it out there how much I enjoyed her work.  I am sure her images helped me grow as a photographer and her impact on the medium will continueon for years and years.  It is always sad to lose someone so important but I am thankful she was able to accomplish so much and influence so many.
