About Falkland Road
Mary Ellen Mark first published her portrait of the prostitutes on Bombay’s Falkland Road in 1981. This new edition also includes previously unpublished photographs along with a new afterword by Mark.
In 1978, Mary Ellen Mark convinced Geo magazine to send her on assignment to Falkland Road. During her three month stay, she was able to earn the trust and acceptance of its people: prostitutes, madams, children, and customers.
For this expanded edition the Marianne Boesky Gallery and the Yancey Richardson Gallery, both in New York City, will mount an exhibition of Cibachrome prints. A special edition of dye transfer prints will also be exhibited at the Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles.
Mary Ellen Mark achieved worldwide visibility through her numerous books, exhibitions and editorial magazine work. She published photo essays and also portraits in such publications as Life, New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair. For over five decades, she traveled extensively to make pictures that reflect a high degree of humanism. So she is recognized as one of our most respected and influential photographers.
Her images of our world’s diverse cultures have since become landmarks in the field of documentary photography. Her portrayals of Mother Teresa, Indian circuses, and brothels in Bombay were the product of many years of work in India. A photo essay on runaway children in Seattle became the basis of the academy award nominated film streetwise, directed and photographed by her husband, Martin Bell.
