Well-renowned photographers capture the grand moments of life -- be it wedding photographers or celebrity photographers but when you set sights on Mary Ellen Mark's photography, you will be amazed.

Mary Mark Ellen is a acknowledged worldwide for her books, exhibitions and editorials. Her photos have been published in the New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone and several others, but it is her ability to capture so-called "regular" people's moments that makes her my favorite. She has been traveling for more than 40 years while showcasing the degree of humanism. This influential photographer has become an idol in the field of documentary photographers.

This gallery of heart-wrenching children captures will certainly pull your heart strings. The most gripping capture is of the little girl who smokes on a cigarette -- yup, it is true.
