Artist Talk: Sally Mann
I recently came upon this very interesting and fascinating talk with one of my favorite artists since high school and college, Sally Mann. In this talk, Sally Mann spoke with curators about her exhibition “A Thousand Crossings” at Jeu de Paume, Paris, that was on display through the fall of 2019. During this talk, she also touches on being one of the first distinguished photographers who was both an artist and a mom.
For over forty years, Sally Mann has made experimental and haunting photographs that explore the overarching themes of existence: memory, desire, death, the bonds of family, and nature’s indifference to human endeavor. What unites this broad body of work is that it is all bred of a place, the American South.
