Sally Mann: If Memory Serves
Sally Mann is one of America's most influential photographers. Reynolds Price, of Time observes “Few photographers of any time or place have matched…the clearly communicated eloquence she derives from her subjects, human and otherwise.” Born in Virginia, Mann has made the American South her subject in portraits, architectural photographs, landscapes and still lives. She is perhaps best known for her intimate, and sometimes controversial, portraits of her family, and for her evocative landscapes. Mann has received numerous awards, including NEA, NEH, and Guggenheim Foundation grants. Her books include What Remains (2003), Deep South (2005), and At Twelve (1988), Immediate Family (1992), Still Time (1994), Proud Flesh (2009), and The Flesh and the Spirit (2010). A feature film about her work, What Remains, debuted to critical acclaim in 2006.
