Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings
On view June 30, 2018 to September 23, 2018
For more than forty years, Sally Mann has made experimental and hauntingly beautiful images that have made her one of the country’s most influential and distinguished photographers. The artist’s first major traveling exhibition, Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings, explores themes of family, memory, mortality, and home as well as the Southern landscape as repository of personal and collective memory. Some 115 photographs — many of which have not been exhibited or published previously — offer a sweeping overview of Mann’s artistic achievement, vision, and drive.
Here Sarah Kennel, PEM's Byrne Family Curator of Photography, talks about the pioneering artist and the enduring power of photography to tell important stories.
