Sally Mann
Sally Mann (born May 1, 1951 in Lexington, Virginia) is an American photographer.
Mann was born in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and attended The Putney School, Bennington College and Friends World College. Mann received a B.A., Summa Cum Laude, from Hollins College (now Hollins University) in 1974 and then took an M.A. in Writing. Mann was given her first show in 1978, I Shall Save One Land Unvisited, a group show curated by the poet and photographer Jonathan Williams. Mann still lives in Lexington with her husband and three children, Jessie, Emmet, and Virginia.
Much of Mann's work has been controversial. She first gained notoriety with her second published collection, At Twelve: Portraits of Young Women (1988). According to critics, those portraits "captured the confusing emotions and developing sexual identities of girls at that transitional age, one foot in childhood and one foot in the adult world."
