Mark , Mary Ellen - Seen behind the scene / Forty years of photographing on set /

 

Since the 1960s Mary Ellen Mark has worked on over 100 film sets as what the film studios call a 'special stills photographer', making thousands of documentary photographs of life behind the scenes, rather than the conventional still photographs made of actors on camera. This exciting book presents the best of her images ranging from the first films that Mark shot in the 1960s such as Fellini's Satyricon, to legendary 1970s productions like Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now and Milos Forman's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, as well as films from the ensuing decades that range from Network to Tootsie, from Gandhi to Showgirls. She continues to work on film sets and over the last decade has photographed recent Oscar-winning productions such as Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Babel and Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd. The text for the book comes from a number of high profile actors, directors and film industry professionals who complete this picture of life 'behind the scenes' by sharing their anecdotes and thoughts about their profession.
