Sally Mann – A Thousand Crossings – At National Gallery Of Art

Sally Mann Exhibit-8

Sally Mann Exhibit-9

Living in Washington DC is such a delight when I can walk to the National Gallery of Art and experience Sally Mann’s solo exhibit with a group of photographers who like to discuss the finer points of technique and process. Inspiration and criticism go hand-and-hand when you have a group of accomplished and opinionated individuals in the same room. Of course, each of us has a camera weighing down our necks and the irritation may add to our determination to get out point across.

Over 40 years of 110 images span the galleries, organized in five sections. Many have never been exhibited before. There are two videos that illuminate Mann’s thought process and technique.
