Sally Mann (WARNING: NUDITY IS PRESENT IN SOME PHOTOS)

I have a new favourite photographer. SALLY MANN. I went to her exhibition the other day at the Photographers Gallery and I was literally blown away.

She uses antique film cameras to take the photos, and then often uses the back of her truck as a temporary darkroom. This means that lots of her photos have marks, drips and stains on them, which makes me love them even more.

The exhibition was a compilation of three different sets, with my favourite prints being from the series, "Immediate Family". It was a truly brilliant exhibition, and below are a few photos of hers.

sally mann! omg i went to see her stuff at the photogrpahers gallery yesterday and it was absolutely stunning! there wasn't one photo i disliked. esp loved all the ones of her children, so beautiful and the one with the girl in water with her head poking out of the water which was also in the metro last week.

omg these photos are adorable, theyre so eye-catching and moving. Although im not sure to what extent i agree with the child nudity and the child with the cigarette, although the photos do make up for it. i saw these photos on mary lee's blog and i was fishing for the photographer anyway, so thanks for sharing (:

Amazing photos - I love the second one, mostly cuz it's contraversial, but it get's people talking, feeling, thinking... I believe summoning controversy is possibly one of the cleverest things you can do as a photographer ;)
