Exposure: The Iconic Photographs of Mary Ellen Mark

From Publishers Weekly
Street kids, prostitutes, mental patients and other desperate characters haunt this retrospective of documentary photographer Mark's 40-year career. Though Mark cites Federico Fellini as a major influence (there's a lovely photo of the director on the set of Satyricon), it's hard not to see strong overtones of Diane Arbus in these pages, with all of Arbus's strengths and flaws. To their credit, Mark's images have a stark, dramatic flair and present gripping scenes that quickly seize viewers' attention. When her images are at their most potent, as in her portraits of Indian circus performers proudly demonstrating their art, the photos seem naturally observed, insightful rather than sensational. In her weaker moments, however, Mark can seem heavy-handed, and the images lean too hard on the absurdity, or luridness,...

From Publishers Weekly
Documentarian Mark captured the late Mother Teresa working among the starving sick of Calcutta, and her portraits of Central American factory workers and the underclasses of Appalachia and U.S. inner cities have combined empathy and insight. Now Mark goes all Diane Arbus on us in her new book of twins shot in 20 x 24 black and white Polaroid format, stunningly reproduced. Shot during 2001 and 2002 "Twins Days" festivals in Twinsburg, Ohio, site of the annual U.S. convention for twins (and triplets), subjects were pursued and herded into a darkened tent built to Mark's specifications by a large crew. The book begins with a pair of young girls in what looks to be the bygone costumes of the Gish sisters in D.W. Griffith's Broken Blossoms, and the air of the antique and the unsettling rarely lets up. One elderly man...

Book Description
Love is the most profound, powerful, and encompassing force in our everyday lives. Under its influence, we become physically transformed: our faces register joy and tenderness and pleasure; our gestures are filled with grace. It falls to artists-and, in particular, photographers-to capture these fleeting states and to show us how we look when we are moved by love. Love is a stunning collection of 170 black-and-white photographs by an international selection of passionate image makers, including Bruce Davidson, Elliot Erwitt, Leonard Freed, and Mary Ellen Mark, that portray people expressing love. It is an anthology of the ways that we talk to one another with our eyes and our hands; with the shape of our lips and the curve of our bodies. The photographs are accompanied by vivid quotations from modern writers (Susan...


Falkland Road

Book Description
Falkland Road is a notorious street of prostitutes in Bombay. It is like any busy lower-class street in Bombay, densely populated by vendors, merchants and shops, but also overcrowded with girls, from 11-year-olds to 65-year-old ex-madams. The street is lined with old wooden buildings, which teem with prostitutes hanging out of the windows, in the viewing cages on the ground floor, and on the steps. From sunrise to sunset the customers pass down the street to survey the girls. Mary Ellen Mark's extraordinary portrait of Falkland Road was first published in 1981 and has long been recognized as one of the major bodies of work in the canon of this significant Magnum photographer. The book contains 65 photographs made over six weeks that show the daily life lived by the women (and men) of the street. Mark's images are...

Moulin Rouge (Newmarket Pictorial Movie Book Series)

From Publishers Weekly
"I was left with the understanding that the Bollywood musical and its outrageous tragicomic storytelling succeeded because of a deal that exists between the film and its audience... the pretence that what is to be experienced is in any way real is swept away," explains Baz Luhrmann in Moulin Rouge! A Film Directed by Baz Luhrmann of his original inspiration for the movie. Absinthe; gaslight; sultry, pallid, Toulouse-Lautrec-inspired characters; drag; more absinthe; contortionists, Siamese twins, song, dance, sets and cinematography to set the mind reeling characterize this unprecedented musical film set in the "real artificiality" of Luhrmann's Parisian/Bohemian/modernized-turn-of-the-century vision. Cinematic and plot highlights, behind-the-scenes shots and confessions by producers, choreographers,...
