“Tiny: Streetwise Revisited,” a photography exhibit by Mary Ellen Mark, is a rare examination of intergenerational poverty, radiating out to issues of homelessness, education, healthcare, addiction, mental health, and child welfare. Mark’s images provide powerful insight into some of the more complex challenges of contemporary American life, yet also reveal a unique 30-year relationship between an artist and her subject, a young street prostitute whom she first met at the age of 13.
