Mary Ellen Mark shoots “J.T. LeRoy” for Vanity Fair*

Rest In Peace, Mary Ellen Mark.
*I think often of the J.T. LeRoy/Laura Albert story, and especially about this Vanity Fair shoot with Mary Ellen Mark, whose pictures so perfectly captured the atmospheres of in-between youth. This shoot (if not necessarily this picture) encapsulates such a deliberate moment of identity-forming/fabrication. I think of the moment as alternately irony and tragedy, and always captivating.
