Art or Pornography? The Life and Work of Sally Mann



Sally Mann is an American photographer who has pushed the limits of black and white fine art. Early in her career, Sally captured both real and staged moments of her children’s youth that quickly became subject of much controversy.

Immediate Family, a collection of images of her children under the age of 10, showcased mainly normal, happy childhood moments. However other images featured her kids unclothed with themes of depression, anxiety, and even death. Obviously Sally’s work sparked strong emotions, and the debate about what is exploitation and what is art became synonymous with her name.

The acclaimed What Remains: The Life and Work of Sally Mann is an interesting documentary that focuses on Sally’s work and how she approaches her craft. Now a praised nature photographer, Sally discusses her controversial early images as well as many of her current projects including landscapes in the deep south and portraits of her husband as he deals with muscular dystrophy. Check out Sally Mann’s bookstore for great reading material from this revolutionary photographer.
