Mark has long been fascinated by India, and made several trips there to photograph its various subcultures. Her images of prostitutes in Mumbai, Falkland Road , appeared in book form in 1981, and she also spent time with the Roman Catholic humanitarian worker Mother Teresa in her Calcutta mission. Mark gained further renown for her series on Indian circuses, and the best images culled from all of these trips were included in Exposure , the 2005 retrospective volume.
