Sally Mann

Sally Mann is one of America’s most influential photographers,  perhaps best known for her intimate, sometimes controversial, portraits of her family, and her evocative landscapes, still lifes and architectural photographs of the American South.  Reynolds Price of Time Magazine says “Few photographers of any time or place have matched the clearly communicated eloquence she derives from her subjects.” Mann has received numerous awards, including NEA, NEH, and Guggenheim Foundation grants. Her books include What Remains (2003), Deep South (2005), 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.
