With its hundred images and many documents, the exhibition Ward 81 offered a look back to the month in 1976 that Mary Ellen Mark spent photographing the residents of a psychiatric institution. In her review of the project, Fanny Bieth notes the agency of the subjects portrayed – a rare phenomenon in the history of photography in psychiatric settings.
