Sally Mann, whose intimate and strikingly candid portrayals of family life became iconic images of the 1990’s, has turned her camera to the landscape. Working with collodion wet plate negatives and a funky large-format camera (she uncovers the lens with her hand in lieu of a shutter), she is producing another very unique body of work.

Called “America’s Best Photographer” by Time Magazine in 2001, Sally Mann has received a Guggenheim fellowship and three NEA fellowships. She exhibits throughout the world, has published four books of her work, and is the subject of documentary films in 1993, 2002 and 2004.This benefit ($95 per person) includes a wine reception, slide show lecture, Q&A, post-lecture champagne and chocolates, and a special edition 5 x 7 archival digital print of Sally Mann’s early work.
