Photographer Mary Ellen Mark is Our Guest DJ

Written by
Mary Ellen Mark

Mary Ellen Mark is one of the most respected photographers in the world and captured famous shots of Dennis Hopper and Federico Fellini. She often chooses to turn her camera on some of those less fortunate as well, addressing social issues like homelessness.

When it comes to music, however, she’s a true romantic.

In her Guest DJ Project set, Mary Ellen takes us on a musical tour of her entire life – from her time as head cheerleader in high school, to the Fulbright scholarship that launched her love of travel, and her passion for teaching photography in Mexico.

She shoots mainly in black and white and still shoots with film. Enjoy some of her most iconic photos below and hear her Guest DJ set here.
