Sally Mann: Proud Flesh at Gagosian Gallery
Sally Mann’s latest body of work, Proud Flesh opens Tuesday, September 15 at Gagosian Gallery in New York City coinciding with Aperture’s publication of her monograph by the same name. A deeply personal and moving project, these candid nudes of her husband, Larry Mann, explore subtle complexities between both man and woman, and artist and subject. Her unique production process gives a painterly feel to the images, which are contact prints from wet-plate collodion negatives that are produced by coating a sheet of glass with ether-based collodion and submerging in silver nitrate. Be sure to attend the opening reception of this inspirational body of work from one of contemporary photography’s icons.
