'These beautiful photographs by Sally Mann vividly capture the haunting, shadowy otherworldliness of the American South. As much literary as artistic, they virtually bring to life the voices of William Faulkner and Eudora Welty and Flannery O'Connor.' John Grisham
'How does one document an ever-present past ? In word and image, Sally Mann eloquently evokes coexistence between what can be seen and what transpired before. Her pictures are haunting, elegant laments, and, for those of us steeped in Southern history, they are vivid reminders of glory, tragedy, blunders, and dreams.'
Anne Wilkes Tucker, Gus and Lyndall Wortham Curator, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
Praise for What Remains
'Mann has hand-coated glass plates to use as her negatives, in the manner of nineteenth-century photographers like Timothy O'Sullivan. The results are often penumbral, dappled, and pentimento-like, as if history were leaking through the emulsion itself.' New York Times Book Review
'The lush, deeply evocative landscapes are redolent of the South at its most genteel and mysteriously Gothic, but also at its most mournful.' Washington Post
