Mary Ellen Mark on Street Photography

Video with an interview with Mary Ellen Mark’s take on Street photography. Only 3 and a half minutes. Watch and listen. It’s an exert from Cheryl Dunn’s excellent new documentary on New York street photography, “Everybody Street,”.

I like that she says it’s harder to be a woman than a man, but there are advantages to being a female street or documentary photographer because basically people will trust you more. That’s true.
