    Sally Mann: What Remains
    As one of the world's preeminent photographers, Sally Mann creates artwork that challenges viewers' values and moral attitudes. Described by Time magazine as "America's greatest photographer," she first came to international prominence in 1992 with Immediate Family, a series of complex and enigmatic pictures of her three children. In SALLY MANN: WHAT REMAINS, director Steve Cantor follows the creation of Mann's same-named series on the myriad aspects of death and decay. Never one to compromise, she reflects on her own personal feelings toward mortality as she continues to examine the boundaries of contemporary photography. At her family farm in Virginia, she is surrounded by her husband and now-grown children, and her willingness to reveal her artistic process allows the viewer to gain exclusive entrance to her world. Spanning five years, SALLY MANN: WHAT REMAINS contains unbridled access to the many stages of Mann's work, and is a rare glimpse of an eloquent and brilliant artist.

    try Netflex for a copy.

    it is great view, and it certainly puts more "light" on her work.

    Gosh, that must have been one of those nights I was worn out (all of them) and fell asleep right after dinner. It is rough having sooo much fun at Photostock that you can't stay up and awake with the youngsters.

    they are there val.

    the one i love the most is when she talks about her feelings about the cancellation of a big show with the Body Farm images.
    very real, honest and intimate for sure.
