started to look at some of Sally Manns images after a discussing an image by Kerik Kouklis. I find some of the images quite challenging on a personal level - coming from a very liberal but social work background probably makes me think too much. I have read about Jock Sturgess and some similarities! Are this intimate portraits one would consider are normally done for the family ablum - the skill of the photographer takes these images to another level but is that public and are people being exploited somehow - I am sure they are not! A lot of work has gone into making these as it appears that most of the family images are all 10x8s! http://www.morehousegallery.com/images/inventory/600/mann s 00003.jpg http://www.brown.edu/Administration/News_Bureau/1996-97/96-057a.jpeg not sure if this last one is by Sally Mann? http://personal.centenary.edu/~jhendric/visual_culture/photo_Sturges_LKM0157B.jpg Interested in any thoughts.
