Sally Mann

If you've ever heard of photographer Sally Mann, you probably either love her or hate her. Critically both hailed and condemned, Mann is perhaps most famous for her 1992 book Immediate Family, a portfolio of photographs of her three young children playing (often nude) amidst the wilderness backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains in rural Virginia. Despite all her criticism, I've always thought that her photographs have incredible presence and depth.

Here are some of my favorites.
