Mary Ellen has been photographing on the streets of New York City since before she even lived in New York City-and she continues to. The energy and variety of New York has always inspired Mary Ellen. This is a small selection of photographs ranging from a carnival in Brooklyn in the 70s to a recent 9/11 Anniversary event in lower Manhattan. Magazine assignments, jobs on film sets, and even some personal connections have given Mary Ellen the opportunity to meet and photograph many well-known personalities over the years. In 1995, Mary Ellen was introduced to the 20x24 Polaroid camera. There are only a few working cameras in the world, so she feels fortunate to have one nearby.
Mary Ellen (Estill) Rudin was born in Hillsboro, Texas to Joe Jefferson Estill and Irene (Shook) Estill. Her mother Irene was an English teacher before marriage, and her father Joe was a civil engineer. The family moved with her father's work, but spent a great deal of Mary Ellen's childhood around Leakey, Texas. She had one sibling, a younger brother. They are not hard to read, they are just hard mathematics, that's al. (Steve Watson).
