"The only bad part about flying....

is having to come back down to the fucking world."




This just may be the best Kickstarter ever. 

In 1983, Mary Ellen Mark and her husband, Martin Bell, made an amazing documentary about street kids in Seattle, called Streetwise

One of the main kids in the doc was Tiny, a 13 year old prostitute, who Mark and Bell kept in contact with over the years. 





With the help of this Kickstarter, they are making a follow-up to Streetwise called Tiny Revisited, focusing on Tiny, now 44, and her family. 


Aperture is also publishing a new edition of the book Streetwise in 2015, which will feature additional photos taken over the past 30 years. 



and my favorite photo...


I backed this, you should too. I can't wait to see it.
