The first major travelling survey of the artist’s career, this exhibition explores how Sally Mann’s relationship with the American South has shaped her work. Experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographs—many never before shown—reveal how she probes themes of family, mortality, and the landscape as a repository of personal and collective memory. Asking powerful questions about history, identity, race, and religion, the exhibition demonstrates how the legacy of the South continues to permeate American identity.
This exhibition is organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and the Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, Massachusetts.
