Sally Mann is one of America’s most renowned photographers, best known for her large-scale black and white photographs of her family as well as her more recent epic landscapes. She has received numerous awards, including National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, and Guggenheim Foundation grants. Her many books include Immediate FamilyWhat Remains, and Deep South. In her 2009 collection, Proud Flesh, Mann photographed her husband of 39 years and the beautiful and haunting images reveal a profoundly trusting relationship between a man and a woman. Her most recent publication, The Flesh and the Spirit, is her first in-depth study of the human body. It includes platinum prints from the 1970s, early images of her family, recent self-portraits, as well as nude studies of her husband. A feature film about Mann’s work, What Remains, debuted to critical acclaim in 2006. She lives in Lexington, Virginia.
