Liz Guseman frequently finds herself in neighborhoods like Baltimore’s Park Heights, part of her ongoing project to document the people in the city’s neighborhoods. So armed with her camera and a smile, Guseman engages and captures.
Crystal Dunn’s street is actually the bar she works in several nights a week — BAR, in Fells Point. Dunn, a regular bartender, photographs her subjects while serving drinks. She and her camera have become a popular mainstay at the little-known Baltimore bar.
Philadelphia-born humanist photographer, Mary Ellen Mark, died at the age of 75 on Monday, May 25, 2015.
Mark’s work had been widely published in LIFE, the New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair. During her career, she traveled extensively “to make pictures that reflect a high degree of humanism.”
Throughout her career, she produced 18 books and was working on her 19th for Aperture. That final project was focused on Tiny, a young prostitute from Seattle whom she had photographed in Streetwise, her much admired essay published in 1988. Her photographs from Seattle also became the basis of the academy award nominated film, also named Streetwise, directed and photographed by her husband, Martin Bell.
American photographer, Diane Arbus, was born in New York City on March 14, 1923 to David Nemerov and Gertrude Russek Nemerov, a Jewish couple who owned Russek’s, a famous Fifth Avenue department store.
Arbus is most known for her photographs of social deviants or “freaks.” “There’s a quality of legend about freaks,” Arbus said. “Like a person in a fairy tale who stops you and demands that you answer a riddle. Most people go through life dreading they’ll have a traumatic experience. Freaks were born with their trauma. They’ve already passed their test in life. They’re aristocrats.”
