The extraordinary, compelling, honest, beautiful and unsparing photographs all have to do with the quality of our lives in the ongoing world: they succeed in showing us the grain of the present, like the cross-section of a tree…. They focus on the mundane world. But no subject is fuller of implications than the mundane world!
Eudora Welty, describing William Eggleston’s photographs.
One things for sure: In the kind of social documentary photography I do, you’re never a fly on the wall. You’re as much a part of the scene as your subjects. They never forget you’re there.
Mary Ellen Mark
