Sally Mann : Mother Land, O.E.. 1997 SIGNED

Sally Mann : Mother Land, O.E.. 1997 SIGNED

Description :

Very beautiful signed copy sof a rare book .

The American photographer Sally Mann was born in 1951 to Lexington in Virginia. She conquered her fame in a climate of controversy for her representation of a sensual and grave childhood, the protagonists of which were his own children and the backdrop, the ancestral one Virginian landscape which establishes a possible representation of "Green paradise of the loves childish" dear to the poet Baudelaire.

In The Mother Land we shall find no human figure directly present in the image and it he is question of earth - mother which is of use as living environment to the family of the photographer … Sally Mann photographs most of the time with a large format camera 8×10 and she used here former and sometimes defective objectives as well as the technique of printing by wet collodion use by the masters of the photography of 19 ème century, technique which allows the manual intervention of the artist. The haloes of light, the partial erasure of a part of the image or the overexposure, the vignetage, translate well this proustian feeling from the search lost time which evokes Sally Mann in the text of the foreword: "the real paradises are the ones that we lost". Some of these landscapes disappear also almost completely in a black night which could be suggestive of the death if the daylight did not reappear every morning.
