Iam thank you because your visit in the my website with title Watch About It. Understanding Art And Artists At Art21.org. Happy reading

The photographer Sally Mann has spent her entire career documenting the land and inhabitants of her family farm in Lexington, Virginia. Through Mann’s camera lens, viewers have been able to glimpse the landscape of the generational homestead where Mann grew up and raised her own children, its details rendered with lyrical intimacy.

Throughout her work, Mann has dug into the themes that, she says, are particularly important to Southern artists, whom the artist characterizes as being preoccupied by “their love of the past… their obsession with place and their obsession with family.” 

In “The Two Virginias,” Mann looks at a figure who was not related by blood, but who played an intimate, formative role in her life: Virginia Franklin Carter, the African American woman who worked for her family for three decades and raised Mann and her brothers. “My parents were important,” Mann says, “but Virginia may have been the single most important person in my life.” (In fact, Mann has named her own daughter Virginia, as a tribute; she is the second Virginia of the title).
