The photography world lost an invaluable and legendary contributor yesterday. Mary Ellen Mark passed in Manhattan at the age of 75. Mark, who shot predominately in black and white, was responsible for countless iconic images from homeless youth in Seattle to circus performers, or prostitutes in Mumbai to mental patients. Whatever the chosen subject may have been which were often social issues, Mark had no difficulty producing resonating and arresting imagery.

In 1983, Mary Ellen Mark tackled the subject of child homelessness in Seattle in a photo series done for LIFE magazine. Though the clothing styles and haircuts are obviously dated, the lifestyles and dangers shown in Mark’s images still resonate with Seattle’s homeless youth today.
