Sally Mann

I fell in love with Sally Mann after I stumbled upon her work not long ago

she balances technique with subject to create an image that teeters on the edge of disturbing but you can still see the love for her subjects beneath it

having largely used her family in the portraits she says "the things that are close to you are the things you photograph the best, and unless you photograph what you love you're not going to make good art"

her recent collection of portraits of her husband in Proud Flesh are a beautiful study in intimacy.
