Sally Mann

Author: John B. Ravenal
Publisher: Aperture
ISBN: 1597111627
Release Date: 2010
Genre: Photography

In collaboration with the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and accompanying its landmark 2010 exhibition, Aperture is pleased to publish Sally Mann: The Flesh and The Spirit, the first in-depth look at this world-renowned artists approach to the body. Throughout her career, Mann has fearlessly pushed her exploration of the human form, tackling o!en di"cult subject matter and making unapologetically sensual images that are simultaneously bold and lyrical. This beautifully produced publication includes Manns earliest platinum prints from the late 1970s, Polaroid still lifes, early color work of her children, haunting landscape images, recent self-portraits, and nude studies of her husband. The series document Manns interest in the body as principal subject, with the associated issues of vulnerability and mortality lending an elegiac note to her images. In bringing them together, author and curator John Ravenal examines the varied ways in which Manns experimental approach, including ambrotypes and gelatinsilver prints made from collodian wet-plate negatives, moves her subjects from the corporeal to the ethereal. Sally Mann: The Flesh and The Spirit, a one-of-a-kind publication, is a must for any serious library of photographic literature, students, scholars, collectors, and others interested in her work. Ravenal has written a comprehensive introduction as well as individual entries on each series, and essays by David Levi Strauss (Eros, Psyche, and the Mendacity of Photography) and Anne Wilkes Tucker (Living Memory) add di#erent, but equally illuminating perspectives to this work.

Remembered Light Cy Twombly in Lexington

Author: Sally Mann
Publisher: ABRAMS
ISBN: 1419722727
Release Date: 2016-09-13
Genre: Art

The artists Cy Twombly and Sally Mann may at first seem an unlikely pairing. He was a leading contemporary artist who defied easy categorization, a painter and sculptor whose enigmatic work often referenced mythology and epic poetry. She is a photographer with an uncanny ability to tap raw human emotion, whether depicting members of her family or the landscape of the American South. What they had in common was place both grew up in rural Lexington, Virginia, where Twombly kept a studio and produced some of his most important work until his death in 2011, and where Mann has lived and worked all her life. Over the course of several years, Mann photographed inside Twombly s studio: the paint splatters on the floor and walls, the works in progress, the sculptures as they caught the raking rays of light passing through Venetian blinds, the progression from order to chaos that so often characterizes an artist s working place. The result is a rare insider s view of Twombly s process we sense him in the room at every turn, although he is always just beyond the frame and a poetic dialogue between two artistic visions."

Sally Mann

Author: Sarah Greenough
Publisher: Harry N. Abrams
ISBN: 1419729039
Release Date: 2018-03-27
Genre: Photography

For more than 40 years, Sally Mann (b. 1951) has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographs that explore the overarching themes of existence: memory, desire, death, the bonds of family, and nature's magisterial indifference to human endeavor. What unites this broad body of work--portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and other studies--is that it is all "bred of a place," the American South. Mann, who is a native of Lexington, Virginia, uses her deep love of her homeland and her knowledge of its historically fraught heritage to ask powerful, provocative questions--about history, identity, race, and religion--that reverberate across geographic and national boundaries. Organized into five sections--Family, The Land, Last Measure, Abide with Me, and What Remains--and including many works not previously exhibited or published, Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings is a sweeping overview of Mann's artistic achievements.

The Elizas

Author: Sara Shepard
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 9781501162794
Release Date: 2018-04-17
Genre: Fiction

New York Times bestselling author of Pretty Little Liars Sara Shepard makes her mark on adult fiction with this Hitchcockian double narrative composed of lies, false memories, and a protagonist who must uncover the truth for survival. When debut novelist Eliza Fontaine is found at the bottom of a hotel pool, her family at first assumes that it’s just another failed suicide attempt. But Eliza swears she was pushed, and her rescuer is the only witness. Desperate to find out who attacked her, Eliza takes it upon herself to investigate. But as the publication date for her novel draws closer, Eliza finds more questions than answers. Like why are her editor, agent, and family mixing up events from her novel with events from her life? Her novel is completely fictional, isn’t it? The deeper Eliza goes into her investigation while struggling with memory loss, the closer her life starts to resemble her novel, until the line between reality and fiction starts to blur and she can no longer tell where her protagonist’s life ends and hers begins. Fans of Pretty Little Liars, S.J. Watson’s Before I Go to Sleep, and Ruth Ware’s The Woman in Cabin 10 will be drawn to the drama of feeling like no one is on your side, the high tension of not knowing who you can trust, the hair-raising truths hidden among lies, and a faceless, nameless presence controlling Eliza’s life from the shadows.

Night Studio

Release Date: 2016-04
Genre:

Philip Guston (1913-1980) is one of the outstanding figures in twentieth century American art. Beginning as a muralist in the thirties, Guston embraced the lyrical vocabulary of Abstract Expressionism in his paintings and drawings after his move to the East Coast. Following an artistic crisis in the mid-sixties, his return to figuration focusing first on simple things of ordinary life, later evolving to the enigmatic and iconic cartoonlike forms for which he is now best known shook the art world. Night Studio is a deeply personal account of growing up in the shadow of a great artist, a daughter's quest to better understand her father, based on letters and notes by the artist, and interviews with those who knew him. First published to critical acclaim in 1988, this beautifully designed new edition is richly illustrated with a new selection of photographs and paintings, many in color. Also available: Philip Guston: Drawings for Poets ISBN 9783944874197 Philip Guston: Prints ISBN 9783944874180
