APERTURE

Sally Mann: Immediate Family

Afterword by Reynolds Price.

Sally Mann: Immediate FamilyFirst published in 1992, Immediate Family has been lauded by critics as one of the great photography books of our time, and among the most influential. Taken against the Arcadian backdrop of her woodland summer home in Virginia, Sally Mannís extraordinary, intimate photographs of her children reveal truths that embody the individuality of her own family yet ultimately take on a universal quality. With sublime dignity, acute wit and feral grace, Sally Mannís pictures explore the eternal struggle between the childís simultaneous dependence and quest for autonomy--the holding on and the breaking away. This is the stuff of which Greek dramas are made: impatience, terror, self-discovery, self-doubt, pain, vulnerability, role-playing and a sense of immortality, all of which converge in these astonishing photographs. This reissue of Immediate Family has been printed using new scans and separations from Mannís original prints, which were taken with an 8 x 10-inch view camera, rendering them with a freshness and sumptuousness true to the original edition.
Born in Lexington, Virginia in 1951, Sally Mann is one of Americaís most renowned photographers. Her work has been exhibited around the world and is held by such institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, all in New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. She has received numerous honors, including a doctorate from the Corcoran College of Art and Design, Washington, DC, and a Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship.
