American photographer Sally Mann is considered to be one of the world’s most celebrated photographers. Her intimate images of highly personal subjects are as controversial as they are famous. The unique, captivatingly fragile quality of her photographs has given her worldwide acclaim, and been an example to many. Her major breakthrough came in the early 1990’s, during the upheaval about her notorious series Immediate Family; featuring her own children. In 2001, Time magazine awarded Sally Mann with the honourable title of “America’s Best Photographer”.
In ‘A Matter Of Time’ at Fotografiska Stockholm, the three prominent themes in Sally Mann’s images are present: life, earth and death. The extensive exhibition presents – amongst other works – her notorious series Immediate Family, her early landscape photographs of the American South, and her extremely personal series Proud Flesh; centered around her husband Larry’s struggle with a serious illness. A Matter Of Time also features two of her early projects, ‘Lewis Law’; a range of her early self portraits, and ‘At Twelve’; a series of portraits of young woman. Sally Mann produced a new self portrait exclusively for this exhibition at Fotografiska, which will be displayed for the first time in Stockholm.
