Review by

Sally Mann has done some remarkable work in her lifetime. Her portraits are amazing, especially of her family members. I am not so enamored with her book of corpses and death though I am quite well aware there are many who are. I am also not so enamored with this book either. The photographs are beautiful, but I have seen many of these already taken of the South, including several of my own with a cheap Holga toy camera. A landscape that is so lush with Spanish moss and weeping willows, weathered stumps and ancient stone walls, that to mess up a photograph here would be almost sinful. It is pretty much a quality confidence builder taking landscape photographs in the South. Almost everything you turn your camera on is art down there. An amazing place where I like the "gloaming" too.<br/><br/>Mann controls her words quite well on the page. The three short essays offer up a trifle more than the photographs can muster, which is a good thing I think. Writing should, and can, be made worthwhile.
