Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New York : Aperture, c1992Description: 1 volume (unpaged) : chiefly illustrations ; 26 x 29 cm.Content type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 9781597112543 (hbk.).Subject(s): Mann, Sally, -- 1951 -- Family -- Pictorial works | Photography, Artistic -- 20th century | Photography of children | Photography of children -- ExhibitionsDDC classification: 779​.2092 MAN Summary: First published in 1992, Immediate Family has been lauded by critics as one of the great photography books of our time, and among the most influential. Taken against the Arcadian backdrop of her woodland summer home in Virginia, Sally Mann's extraordinary, intimate photographs of her children reveal truths that embody the individuality of her own family yet ultimately take on a universal quality. With sublime dignity, acute wit and feral grace, Sally Mann's pictures explore the eternal struggle between the child's simultaneous dependence and quest for autonomy -- the holding on and the breaking away. This is the stuff of which Greek dramas are made: impatience, terror, self-discovery, self-doubt, pain, vulnerability, role-playing and a sense of immortality, all of which converge in these astonishing photographs. This reissue of Immediate Family has been printed using new scans and separations from Mann's original prints, which were taken with an 8 x 10-inch view camera, rendering them with a freshness and sumptuousness true to the original edition.
