Publisher's Description

Shortlisted for the 2018 Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation Photography Catalogue Award.

Selected as Book of the Week by Forrest Soper

For more than 40 years, Sally Mann (b. 1951) has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographs that explore the overarching themes of existence: memory, desire, death, the bonds of family, and nature’s magisterial indifference to human endeavor. What unites this broad body of work—portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and other studies—is that it is all “bred of a place,” the American South. Mann, who is a native of Lexington, Virginia, uses her deep love of her homeland and her knowledge of its historically fraught heritage to ask powerful, provocative questions — about history, identity, race, and religion — that reverberate across geographic and national boundaries.

Organized into five sections—Family, The Land, Last Measure, Abide with Me, and What Remains—and including many works not previously exhibited or published, A Thousand Crossings is a sweeping overview of Mann’s artistic achievements.
