Tiny is now almost forty-years-old and she has 10 children. As an April Fool’s joke she called to say that she was again pregnant — but it was just a joke.

Mary Ellen Mark has achieved worldwide visibility through her numerous books,
exhibitions and editorial magazine work. She is recognized as one of our most
respected and influential photographers. Her images of our world’s diverse
cultures have become landmarks in the field of documentary photography and
her photo essay on runaway children in Seattle became the basis of the academy
award nominated film STREETWISE, directed and photographed by her husband,
Martin Be.

Her new book SEEN BEHIND THE SCENE: FORTY YEARS OF PHOTOGRAPHING ON SET is
out now on Phaidon.
