For forty years, Sally Mann has been exploring the Southern U.S. States Virginia, Georgia and Louisiana with her camera, examining themes such as memory, mortality, roots and desire. Now the Getty Center dedicates a major showcase to the American photographer’s work.
“Sally Mann’s distinctive approach to photographing the South has earned her a special place in the history of a genre that includes many of the greatest names in American photography,” states Timothy Potts, director of the J. Paul Getty Museum. A Thousand Crossings encompasses 110 photographs in five sections: Family, The Land, Last Measure, Abide with Me, and What Remains. Many of Mann’s images will be exhibited for the first time.
