Photographs open doors

Sally Mann was born in 1951 in Lexington, Virginia, where she continues to live and work.
“…the things that are close to you, are the things you can photograph the best”
“…and unless you photograph what you love, you are not going to make good art”
…..I struggle with enormous discrepancies: between the reality of motherhood and the image of it, between my love for my home and the need to travel, between the varied and seductive paths of the heart. The lessons of impermanance, the occasional despair and the muse, so tenuously moored, all visit their needs upon me and I dig deeply for the spiritual utilities that restore me: my love for the place, for the one man left, for my children and friends and the great green pulse of spring. – Sally Mann – Still Time catalogue Alleghany Highlands Arts and Crafts Center, 1988
