Sally Mann at Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta - Jackson Fine Art is delighted to present a selection of work from the last segment of acclaimed photographer Sally Mann's What Remains, a series which explores the intricacies of death. Although Mann returns to her most familiar subject-her three children-she diverges from past approaches and themes. These large-format, up-close portraits were created using wet-plate collodion negatives, an arduous process first used by photographers ten years before the Civil War. The resulting photographs emanate a prophetic beauty, each "perfect flaw" in the process foreshadowing our slow but inevitable expiration. Through Aprill 26, 2008.
