Sally Mann - Immediate Family, 1992  Artist’s statement:  “These are photographs of my children … many of these pictures are intimate, some are fictions and some are fantastic, but most are of ordinary things every mother has seen. I take pictures when they are bloodied or sick or naked or angry. They dress up, they pout and posture, they paint their bodies, they dive like otters in the dark river.”  Read more about Sally Mann at Gagosian Gallery.

Sally Mann, Jessie and the Deer (1984). This photograph has a very unsettling vibe due to the juxtaposition between the smiling young girl and the slaughtered deer.

This is one of my favorite photographs by one of my favorite photographers, Sally Mann. I however don't like that the photograph is cropped. I think the truck with the gorgus license plate is necessary to the photograph.
