Documentary Photographer Mary Ellen Mark sits down for a chat with supermodel Helena Christensen. Helena, aside from being a super model, is also a talented photographer so the discussion spans being in front and behind of the camera, having a public persona, making decisions as photographers and traveling across the earth.
Sadly, Mary Ellen Mark passed away in May, but her last assignment from New Orleans is still live on CNN.
Here is the excerpt from the interview description:
