What We're Reading: The Color of Humanity in Sally Mann's South

By David Schonauer   Tuesday March 13, 2018

Photographer Sally Mann is known for capturing the landscape of Virginia, a place, she once wrote, that “stands out in its obsession with the past.” In 1998, she started to travel deeper into the South, making a collective portrait of a landscape with a troubling past, notes Hilton Als in The New Yorker. “The gothic scene would have been powerful in its own right, but Mann’s fascinating clinical dis­tance adds another eerie layer to the pictures,” he writes. The essay is drawn from the new book Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings.
