Sally Mann is best known for a series of work that documents her own family, the lives of her three children in particular. Immediate Family, published in 1992, stirred up intense controversy due to the explicit frankness and intimacy revealed in some photographs taken of the children in various states of nudity. Because of the intimate relationship Mann shared with her family, and the comfort they found in the landscape of their summer home, it had not occurred to her that these images could stir up such controversy.
Our interview with Sally Mann was featured in GUP #17. Unfortunately we're not permitted to publish it online, but we include here a selection of images that went with it for your visual pleasure.
