    1. In one of my Tarot books they describe Sally Mann as the Queen of Swords Queen of Swords has a notoriously bad rap as the Ice Queen, someone who is removed from the garden of earthly delights and blood and guts and fucking and everything else we love as mammals The justification was something like Sally Mann is an artist first, before anything or anyone else And so when she takes pictures of things she loves, like her children, she must remove herself, and function only as the artist, and not as [...]

    2. Have been attracted to her photographs right from the beginning, that s why I m analysing one of them for my essay A thoughtful read and very useful for my essay Shit, can t stop thinking about my essay.

    3. The pictures are gorgeously shot but seem somewhat staged, forcing the subject to become what she wants for instance, cropping the cover photo to focus on the girl s crotch She captures what she set out for, her thesis the dangerous sexuality and gritty beauty of 12 year old girls.

    4. Interesting to see these children, some accepting or craving adulthood, some held back by their parents and others perhaps too early are women already Her framing is original, and the tone of the photos at times is dark with a low depth of field It s a great book.

    5. This book was what inspired me to work in Photography It was a birthday gift from my Mother for my 12th birthday, and I wore it ragged and threadbare looking at the photos and reading her essays over and over Sally Mann is an inspiration.

    6. I m not really reviewing the reading of the text here, although I was glad to have the added story to the photos here Sally Mann continues to be one of my favourite photographers.

    7. Although the photos were beautiful and definitely evocative, I was a little put off since they looked staged than I had expected based on the book s description.

    8. The photographer is actually Sally Mann Her work is amazing I love every book I ve managed to get my hands on.
