Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings
Opens Mar 4, 2018 / National Gallery of Art

Sally Mann

For more than forty years, Sally Mann (b. 1951, Lexington, Virginia) has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographs that span a broad body of work including figure studies, still lifes, and landscapes.

Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings explores how her relationship with the South has shaped her work. Some 115 photographs, many of which have not been exhibited or published previously, offer both a sweeping overview of Mann’s artistic achievement and a focused exploration on the continuing influence of the South on her work.

Mann’s powerful and provocative work is organized into five sections: Family, The Land, Last Measure, Abide with Me, and What Remains. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog with essays that explore the development of Mann’s art; her family photographs; the landscape as repository of personal, cultural, and racial memory; and her debt to 19th-century photographers and techniques.
