Photographs by Sally Mann.
132 pp., numerous black-and-white illustrations, 12½x11½".
Sally Mann's powerful new body of work explores mortality, both the separation of the body from the soul and the scars left behind in the process. Mann masterfully utilizes the wet-plate collodion technique to convey her vision in both visceral and ethereal terms. She photographs the implied spirits of a Civil War battlefield, the physical processes of decomposition at a forensic site, the disfigurement to her family land as the result of a police chase, her skinned greyhound, and her now-grown children. This is Mann's first major book in several years. Watch for the HBO special on her life and photography that will air later next year.
