Children, landscape, lovers―these subjects are almost as common to the photographic lexicon as light itself. But Sally Mann's take on these iconic themes, rendered through both traditional and esoteric processes, is anything but common. Astonishingly original both in imagery and technique, Mann's work consistently challenges the viewer: in her hands, experiences drawn from daily life are rendered both disquieting and sublime. Now, having studied relationships between parent and child, artist and subject, life and death, Mann investigates the bonds between husband and wife. Exquisitely detailed, intimate, psychologically and emotionally intense, Sally Mann: Proud Flesh engages territory most often inhabited by male artists portraying their wives and female lovers, as Mann turns the camera to her husband of 39 years, Larry. Beautiful, textured and provocative, these unprecedented nude studies neither objectify nor celebrate; rather, they go far under the skin to suggest a relationship between man and woman that is profoundly trusting: sensual, sexual, sometimes painful, often indescribably tender and always unblinkingly honest.

Review:

"Her latest photographic study of her husband Larry Mann, taken over six years, has resulted in a series of candid nude studies of a mature male body that neither objectifies nor celebrates the focus of its gaze. Rather it suggests a profoundly trusting relationship between woman and man, artist and model that has produced a full range of impressions - erotic, brutally frank, disarmingly tender, and ore. While the relation of artist and model is, traditionally, a male-dominated field that has yielded countless appraisals of the female body and psyche, Mann reverses the role by turning the camera on her husband during some of his most vulnerable moments." --Glass Magazine

"Mann is... fearless, never clinical, always loving, and even proud in her portrayal of her husband." -- Stephen Longmire --Afterimage: The Journal of Media Arts and Cultural Criticism

"The series took almost six years to shoot, and reveals a powerfully trusting relationship. Mr. Mann, who suffers from muscular dystrophy, is portrayed in a myriad of manners, suggestive of a relationship of this length - sometimes tenderly, sometimes erotically, at times powerful and godlike, and other times with brutal frankness and vulernability. It is a complete and honest study." -- Anna Carnick, Editor --Clear Magazine
