From John Stauffer's text: 'In this new age of finance, digital
technology, and quick surface effects, Sally Mann's photographs are our
evangels of the eye, enabling us to walk more gladly and lightly.
Confronting her work is like discovering a new, mysterious and beautiful
world. It offers a way to redeem a society that is in decline from greed
and pettiness. For like the other truly great and enduring artists, she
has remained faithful to the love of craft, only using technology in the
service of her eye and aesthetic, creating beauty and re-enchanting the
world for the viewer and reader.'
