Photographer Mary Ellen Mark is renowned for her humanist portraits of people and cultures. Presented in books and exhibitions, or appearing in publications like the New Yorker and Vanity Fair, her work often addresses complex social issues. Since the 1960s she has also worked on more than 100 film sets as a special stills photographer. Given unrestricted access to sets and actors, Mark has made thousands of images of life behind-the-scenes of productions including Fellini’s Satyricon, Apocalypse Now, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and Tootsie. Seen Behind the Scene collects the best of her rare photographs of some of the most famous figures in film history.
