The Karsten Greve Gallery is pleased to present an important exhibition devoted to the American Photographer Sally Mann, born in Lexington, Virginia in 1951. This exhibition will present different stages of the artistʼs work in the form of a retrospective featuring photographs taken since the mid-1990ʼs until now. (Deep South 1996-1998, Battlefields 2000-2002, Faces 2004, and Proud Flesh 2004-2009) From the start, Sally Mann has remained true to her principle of photographing her personal environment, whether it involves the landscapes of the southern United States where she has lived since her childhood, or her family. She evokes universal themes such as childhood, memory and the relationship with death. Pushing the limits of a simple representation of reality, she exposes certain details in order to move towards something more universal and gives us images in which time seems to be suspended. Her works are characterised most often by silent contemplation.
