Could you ask Mary Ellen Mark:

1) how one gets into set photography now


2) if it's her set photography that provides her with a living so that she can pursue her personal photographic work?

This is off topic, BUT ...

Mary Ellen Mark photographed the brothels of India.

Would you ask her to comment on her experience of the sex-slavery issue?
