Sally Mann was born in 1951 in the USA.
She usually photographs in black and white. The early photographs of her three children and husband resulted in a series called «Immediate Family».
These were tales of innocence, or of innocence about to be shattered by the intrusion of the adult world with its lies, violence and a thousand other sins.
These are powerful works, evocative of an age, so pure and because of its purity, so vulnerable.
