    Emmett, Jessie, and Virginia, 1989This is the first time I had a closer examination of Mann s work Her name is familiar, yes, but if you d have asked me to describe her oeuvre, I would ve stood there and said..euhm The Hot Dog, 1989The images show a carefree world in which Mann s children grow up It is also where she herself had had her youth There is this ethereal quality, fleeting moments of family life.Most of them spontaneous, some are set up But who can tell Or will tell As the childr Emmett, Jessie, and Virginia, 1989This is the first time I had a closer examination of Mann s work Her name is familiar, yes, but if you d have asked me to describe her oeuvre, I would ve stood there and said..euhm The Hot Dog, 1989The images show a carefree world in which Mann s children grow up It is also where she herself had had her youth There is this ethereal quality, fleeting moments of family life.Most of them spontaneous, some are set up But who can tell Or will tell As the children don t seem to be bothered being the center of attention Candy Cigarette, 1989The one that really made me pause, however, is this image He is Very Sick, 1986Glancing at the title, at first I thought her son was sick, too sick to sit up straight, but then my eye drifted sideways, my focus shifted, and I noticed someone in a bed A hospital bed And because of the blown out background, you hardly notice him It occurred to me, how sick is this person Is he already fading away from life Is that the light from the tunnel one is supposed to go through at the very end of life There was, and still is, some controversy over these images Mann has been accused of pornography and child neglect There are a few photos in which the children are nude But people who see pornography or anything sexual in these, that tellsabout them then about Mann There are also a few in which she photographed the kids after an incident There is a bloody nose, some stitches, a swollen face.But as usually the case with rumors and accussations, there is nothing to be concerned of The children are living in this isolated world where there is barely electricity They are living the free live on a farm, far away from the urban world Why wouldn t they run around without clothes After reading some articles about this book on the net, her children are actually were, cause this was published in the 90 s actually cool about their mother being a photographer They protested when she wanted to hold of publication for ten years, just not to expose them to any scrutiny at that moment.Emmett being teased of a topless photograph, told his friends he is being paid huge sums of money to model for his mother Omitting that it was only 25cts per negative.Now these things make you smile Extra articles The New York Times Huffington Post

    There is something slightly disturbing about Sally Mann s images of her children Of course, having grown up in a hippie household I wasn t shocked by any of them in fact they kind of seemed familiar to me, her scenes around the place her family calls home I definitely could have seen my family and hers hanging out But she really walked to that edge where child nudity walked close to being inappropriate She was unflinching, looking into the heart of childhood, into humanity I love that pe There is something slightly disturbing about Sally Mann s images of her children Of course, having grown up in a hippie household I wasn t shocked by any of them in fact they kind of seemed familiar to me, her scenes around the place her family calls home I definitely could have seen my family and hers hanging out But she really walked to that edge where child nudity walked close to being inappropriate She was unflinching, looking into the heart of childhood, into humanity I love that people were so bent out of shape about the pictures It s so very easy to rile people, I swear And she probably wasn t even trying to.Amazing artistry Provacative, courageous, pure

    Last night, I was pretty tired but since I figured it was beneath me to go to bed at 8.30, I decided to have a look at a photo book instead.Sally Mann is one of my favorite photographers Her works display moments of life with such honesty These are photographs of her immediate family, mainly her children They show the most intimate family moments, unapologetically and unashamed, and most importantly, informal The photos are very honest that way, and at times, vulnerable too.As a whole, this i Last night, I was pretty tired but since I figured it was beneath me to go to bed at 8.30, I decided to have a look at a photo book instead.Sally Mann is one of my favorite photographers Her works display moments of life with such honesty These are photographs of her immediate family, mainly her children They show the most intimate family moments, unapologetically and unashamed, and most importantly, informal The photos are very honest that way, and at times, vulnerable too.As a whole, this is a wonderful portrait of family, with all the good things and the bad things and the complicated baggage The people you love the most are often also the people who most deftly push your buttons, and makes you most angry.It doesn t show school photographer children, with pasted grins and bleary backgrounds, but in a natural and maternal way, kids how every mother has seen them angry, sweet, playing, posing and sleeping The works are very devoted to the subjects.My own mother s photos of my sister and me as kids tried very hard to be stagey She would dress us up in matching outfits which we hated and sit us down around the house and in the garden The photos, however, didn t always turn out as Anne Geddes as Mom would have liked, much of our defiance seeped through.There are, however, a few gems in her collection Sally Mann s photo Virginia Asleep 1988, reminds me especially of my own sister, who could fall asleep anywhere at all, doing anything at all There s this one photograph taken briefly after we moved to Melhus, where my sister has fallen asleep on the living room table, on top of her drawing, still holding her crayon That s one of the sweeter moments, she would also fall asleep in positions that were potentially fatal The moments of this book definitely reminds me of my own family in different, small ways, and I m sure other viewers can relate too.These are photos of everyday goings on, but aren t those the things that really make up a life It s pretty obvious that the reasons Sally Mann has for doing this project are very close to my own reasons for being a photographer Simply that we re dead scared that the moment might slip away into oblivion so we capture it with the lens.This book also has a wonderfully reflective afterword by Reynolds Price.Highly recommended for people who love great photography, or anyone who appreciates art

    Simply brilliant photography Appeals to me firstly because the subject matter are Sally Mann s own children, and she really subverts overarching societal notions of what childhood is innocence, immaturity, and purity, for example The images are not nearly as controversial as the conservative backlash she got in the 90 s would lead you to believe, but there is most certainly an eroticism to some of them that implies what conservative thinking does not want to admit that children are emotiv Simply brilliant photography Appeals to me firstly because the subject matter are Sally Mann s own children, and she really subverts overarching societal notions of what childhood is innocence, immaturity, and purity, for example The images are not nearly as controversial as the conservative backlash she got in the 90 s would lead you to believe, but there is most certainly an eroticism to some of them that implies what conservative thinking does not want to admit that children are emotive, sensual beings, as much so as adults Perhaps it took a parent to capture that complex beauty, and Mann takes advantage of her right, as these children s mother, to photograph and display that complexity, critics be damned Beautiful work that has really inspired my own practice Can t believe she is from rural Virginia

    When me and my three year old looked through this together he said he wanted us to have magic and go into the book and play with Sally Mann s youngest daughter.

    I love Sally Mann s final acknowledgments at this end of this incredible photographic journal of her children above all, my warm love goes to the three bright spirits whom this book celebrates Her vision and ability to capture on camera some of the most intimate and candid moments of a child s life are what make her such a great artist with the camera The images are both evocative and, at times, provocative, but always extraordinary Mann introduces this collection of her work with some rec I love Sally Mann s final acknowledgments at this end of this incredible photographic journal of her children above all, my warm love goes to the three bright spirits whom this book celebrates Her vision and ability to capture on camera some of the most intimate and candid moments of a child s life are what make her such a great artist with the camera The images are both evocative and, at times, provocative, but always extraordinary Mann introduces this collection of her work with some recollections about her own childhood home Reynolds Price recalls photographs of his own youth in a thought provoking afterword

  7. Luke Luke says:

    Supremely uncomfortable to look at I don t know what it is critics have discussed how Mann depicts her children in an almost sensual manner, but I don t think that s quite it Perhaps it s simply looking at the closeness of family life from the outside candids and embarrassing photos can be found throughout.

  8. Taylor Taylor says:

    I begged for this book for Christmas back in high school and wad thrilled to receive it from my brother I remember an ensuing argument with my brother in law about the content I think beauty, love, and tenderness are displayed He thought it pornographic Still boggles me.

    Interest in this book came from its role inLost Children Archive The pictures are beautiful and she does really interesting things with the light I can understand the controversy about these images, though The situation has echoes of Black White i understand that the children participated actively in the photography and chose which photographs would be published, but still On reflection, I find that it s not so much the nudity as the photographs that show the children s vulnerability, Interest in this book came from its role inLost Children Archive The pictures are beautiful and she does really interesting things with the light I can understand the controversy about these images, though The situation has echoes of Black White i understand that the children participated actively in the photography and chose which photographs would be published, but still On reflection, I find that it s not so much the nudity as the photographs that show the children s vulnerability, especially the one where her daughter has been injured All told, though, a really useful source on photography, on visual storytelling, on children, and on motherhood

    Another neutral review I know this book was very controversial when it first came out In today s world, it would be evenso There is no doubt that the photographer has outstanding talent Who am I to judge somebody in a field I know very little about
