Ethereal Meditations on Mortality 4 janvier 2005
Par Grady Harp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
WHAT REMAINS is an apt title to this extraordinary photographic portfolio by the sensitive, ever inquisitive, gentle spirit of Sally Mann. Though often criticized for her 'audacity' of material she elects to photograph, Mann is never less than creative and challenging.

This well designed book is divided into sections that explore life and especially death in its many guises - accidental, violent, natural - and the remains of the deed, matter with which we the living must deal. There is the death of a family greyhound shown with grief and simplicity, the violent death of a criminal killed on Mann's property and the gore of that event and aftermath, a series of views of dead bodies in a morgue, and dark landscape survey of Antietam (a battlefield fro the Civil War) that is haunting and all too reminiscent of ongoing battlefields we still create, and finally some views of her own children's faces.

The camera techniques include ambrotypes and modes of developing that are both difficult and rewarding. One is left with the impact of the fine line between life and death and that vacuum that exists when one becomes the other. Some may find this particular portfolio difficult to see, but perhaps those people will gain the most from Sally Mann's meditations on life and death. Grady Harp, January 2004

Shocking 28 octobre 2003
Par Southern Bard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The first time I viewed this book, standing over it for nearly an hour, I was left socked, so shaken that I had to go to my room and turn off all the lights, and just lie in my bed and rest myself.
What Mann has created is not definable, and doubtless each viewing experience will be different for each individual. She does not seem to be creating an agenda book as much as an human experience. As I moved through I kept on thinking about, or rather questioning myself. What is it to look at a dead body? Is it a sign of disrespect for the dead? Or is it a sign of reverence? After all, it is the easy thing to turn away from the rotting flesh of our family, but that does not mean that it is the respectful thing, right?
One would think that Mann, already an artist at the top of her profession, might be tempted to rest on her laurels. However, this new work proves that she has no intention of doing so. She bravely continues to take risks, as well as dive further into her subject matter, and what remains is one of the world's greatest artists functioning at the peak of her creative powers.

Hauntingly Beautiful 11 septembre 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I was not very familiar with the work of Sally Mann but was so captivated by the cover image on this book that I had to buy it. I was thrilled to see that the interior images are even more compelling. This look into mortality evokes different feelings every time I pick it up. The quality of the images seem far superior to most photography books out there; it's as though the book is filled with actual photographic prints. I highly recommend this book, it would be a unique and meaningful gift.

Unexpected Gem Ignites Human Emotions 7 décembre 2009

I don't even remember how I discovered this book, but I somehow came to have it in my possession. How did I recieve it again? How would one even give this book? It would surely be a strange, if not macabre gift...perhaps only for a devoted Sally Mann fan or during an explorative photographic mission...or as a lovely token from you local village shaman...It's journey to me is unknown, but its presence with me is very much memorable. I remember passing it around to my close relatives, letting them hold it and make painful contortions with their mouths, and I remember the infrequent stumble-upon-moment of browsing at my bookshelf that I would become totally entranced within it, eyes wide, eyes like a giant liquid bubble...what is the healthy way to own this book? It is much too disturbing upon a coffee table (unless that is you are trying to trigger your guests into producing a spasmic array of disgust, pitty, gloom, anger, and haunting whistfulness?) This book mines the human unconscience; it is a sacred text of wordless images; tuck it deep within your library; cherish it privately.

Outstanding! 10 octobre 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Death has long been a subject for artists. Mann's depth and vision elevate even the photos of decomposing bodies several levels above the merely grotesque. Yes, the photos are "difficult". The techniques employed produce dark or washed out and unevenly exposed images. But this adds to the overall mood of the book. And the subject matter is not "pretty". The final section of tightly cropped family photographs sums up "what remains". This is an outstanding project from one of the finest practitioners today of the photographer's art.
