Newsweek Interviews Sally Mann

Images from Sally Mann’s Immediate Family are being exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum as part of a show called Family Pictures. Newsweek interviews Sally and her daughter Virginia about the photos. The article includes two video clips.

In fact, what Mann was seeking, with the willing participation of her young subjects, was an honest record of childhood and growing up. But what she recognized from the start of her project was that nothing about childhood is uncomplicated. It’s not the knowing but the uncertainty, on the part of children and adults, that most distinctively marks this territory.

Update: Please see my interview of Jessie Mann
