Brianna Cristiano Reviews Sally Mann
Sally Mann did a series called the "the deep south" which focuses on photographs that she took in Mississippi and Louisiana. The photographs came out interesting to me because she used the broken lens and camera to her advantage. She used the light leaks and it gives her photographs a unique quality it has a hazy dreamlike feel. She dedicated each photograph to a time in history mostly the Civil rights era and even one where she dedicated to a young boy kidnapped and murdered. I like when photographers use history in their images it gives the photographs a mystery and you want to know more about them and what happened there.
