Lot description
"Untitled (Chancelorsville #29)" is part of the "Deep South" series of photographs that captures the memory of the poignantly lush, historic American country landscape. Through dark, and mysterious surfaces that appear like relics of the past, Mann's dense works salvage the remnants of America's war torn past after the Civil War. Her process is one of intense labor, scratching, varnishing, and grinding the surfaces, often overexposing her subjects to the extreme saturation that characterize her works. The results appear as romantic nightmares of reverence to places like Chancelorsville in Virginia. Her transfixing photographs embrace the inevitable death and disintegration that pursuantly haunts the human condition. This work is printed by the photographer from the original wet-plate collodion negative, archivally dry-mounted, finished with custom mixed Soluvar varnish, and comes framed in excellent condition.

Sally Mann was born in 1951 in Lexington, Virginia, where she continues to live and work. She received a BA from Hollins College in 1974, and an MA in writing from the same school in 1975. Her early series of photographs of her three children and husband resulted in a series called “Immediate Family.” Mann has won numerous awards, including Guggenheim and National Endowment for the Arts fellowships. Her books of photographs include “Immediate Family,” “At Twelve: Portraits of Young Women;” and “Mother Land: Recent Landscapes of Georgia and Virginia.” Her photographs are in the permanent collections of many museums, including The Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.
