Summary For more than 40 years, Sally Mann has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographs that explore the overarching themes of existence: memory, desire, death, the bonds of family, and nature's magisterial indifference to human endeavor. What unites this broad body of work-portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and other studies-is that it is all "bred of a place," the American South. Mann, who is a native of Lexington, Virginia, has long written about what it means to live in the South and to be identified as a Southerner. Using her deep love of her homeland and her knowledge of its historically fraught heritage, she asks powerful, provocative questions-about history, identity, race, and religion-that reverberate across geographic and national boundaries. Organized into five sections-family, landscape, battlefields, legacy, and mortality-and including many works not previously exhibited or published, Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings is a sweeping overview of Mann's artistic achievement of the past four decades. It is also a focused exploration of how the legacy of the South-as both homeland and graveyard, refuge and battleground-emerges within her work as a powerful and provocative force that continues to shape American identity and experience.
