Mary Ellen Mark, More Memories

Here is a 1967 photo of Mark (recently passed away), taken by one of my early mentors, Ralph Gibson (whose hand also appears with Mark’s in this photograph).  She refers to this photograph as “The Enchanted Hand”.  Mark says that she and Gibson once shared a darkroom in the Chelsea Hotel in New York. In notes to one of Mark’s books, I see that Ralph gave her some of the same advice about lens choices and shooting technique that he gave me when I  saw him in California in 1973.
