Streetwise

In high school I was introduced to the work of Mary Ellen Mark.  

She changed how I viewed art.  

She changed how I viewed the lives of my peers at that time.

In conjunction with our studies of her work, we had the opportunity to take a trip down to Ball State University to see her give a presentation.  

I met her.  I heard her.  I understood.

If you have an extra hour and a half, check out this documentary.

It's about street kids in Seattle in the early eighties.

It was nominated for an Academy Award for best documentary--with reason.
