First Major International Overview of the Work of Photographer Sally Mann Travels to Getty Museum

The first major international exhibition of the work of American born photographer, Sally Mann. The exhibition explores themes of family, memory, mortality, and the Southern landscape as repository of personal and collective memory. Experimental, melancholic, and hauntingly beautiful Mann’s photographs - many not exhibited before - expose how her relationship with the land has shaped her work and how the legacy of the South continues to permeate American identity. Curated by Mazie M. Harris.

 

Organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and the Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, Massachusetts.
