One of the most iconic images from Sally Mann's "Immediate Family" series, "The Last Time Emmett Modeled Nude" depicts the artist's son submerged waist-deep in the swirling waters of the river near their Virginia home. This photograph was included in her book, Immediate Family, which features images of all three of her children playing, acting, and posing. As the title implies, this photograph symbolizes the last time that Emmett would ever pose nude in front of his mother’s camera. Mann’s work is characterized by its nostalgic, soft-toned and aged quality, while it brings up the idea of the innocence and fragility of childhood and the inevitable progression of a child into adulthood.
