Mary Ellen Mark tells an important story through her collection of photographs of the street children of Seattle. Streetwise captures not only the children's lives on the streets but, in their expressions and mannerisms, the effect of that life on them. This remarkable lens into lives on the streets includes the transcript from the Academy Award Nominated film "Streetwise," directed by her husband Martin Bell and with a soundtrack by Tom Waits. These cityscape portraits are a moving sample of her compelling photojournalism. This book is a powerful education into one of the darker sides of American life.
