Sally Mann “reinvented family photography”, she likes to tickle the “unappropriate” (her children violence or sensuality, the proximity of death), staying always on the sweet side though. Like sniffing danger…
I noticed this : The public loves her, many critics don’t. I appreciate her work, her splendid calm blackandwhitery.

- I always dislikes “rebels” who easily like to shock the bourgeois. It’s often boring and ridiculous. She’s never on this plateau – though her so-called exhibitionism became more disturbing today…
You’ll find plenty more on Google Images, and many articles to make you think about the pros & cons.
Thanks for reading!
