She takes pictures with a damaged lens, a camera that requires her hand as a shutter.

She effectively use imperfections in her photos, such as scratches and nicks that show her style.

She also doesn't "correct" the images in the darkroom, simply printing whatever she is given.

It is the combination of factors that make the work so powerful.
They have an archaic feel, while retaining critical elements of modernism. Sally Mann and her camera Sally Mann was born on May 1, 1951 in Lexington, Virginia.
She was the youngest of three children.

Her father, a doctor, inspired Mann to take up photography;
his old 5 by 7 camera led her to using mainly large format cameras in her work. Sally Mann Sally Mann took her first photography class at The Putney School. After graduating from The Putney School in 1969,
Mann attended both Bennington College and Friends World College.
In 1974 and 1975 she earned her B.A. and an M.F.A. in creative writing. She has received numerous awards, including NEA, NEH, and Guggenheim Foundation grants, and her work is held by major institutions internationally.

Her many books include Second Sight (1983), At Twelve (1988), Immediate Family (1992), Still Time (1994), What Remains (2003), Deep South (2005), Proud Flesh (2009), and The Flesh and the Spirit (2010).

Were they part of a trend or movement? Mann has become a familiar name to anyone who follows contemporary photography. Her most familiar, and controversial, imagery focused on the lives of her three children. These were tales of innocence about to be shattered by the intrusion of the adult world with its lies, violence, and other sins. They are powerful works evocative of age,
so pure and because of their purity, so vulnerable. It's the tragedy of growing up. Her unique style and techniques Her black and white photographs Surrealistic Abstract Antique lenses Broken Camera Damaged lenses Her ideas Message in her photos Thought-Provoking Sally Mann has attempted to capture the spirit of Pictorialism, an international and aesthetic movement which dominated photography from the 1980's to the end of the 1930's. Trend or movement? Pictorialism refers to a style in which the photographer has somehow manipulated what would otherwise be a straightforward photograph as a means of "creating" an image rather than simply recording it. This style, which attempted to imitate painting, is known for its dramatic effects achieved through the use of special lenses and bold manipulation in the darkroom. The images are dominated by a fuzzy, dark, moody, and atmospheric quality; a pictorial photograph appears to lack a sharp focus and is printed in one or more colors other than black-and-white, ranging from warm brown to deep blue. It also may have visible brush strokes or other manipulation of the surface. Now, let's see more of Sally Mann's photos T A H N K Y U O !
