Description

From 1985 to 1994, Sally Mann photographed the coming of age of her three children: Emmett, Jessie, and Virginia. One of the first photographers to explore in depth the psyche and drama of adolescence, Mann’s series Immediate Family is an intimate portrait of childhood through the tender eye of a mother. Although the children often directly confront the camera in the series, Sunday Funnies depicts a quiet scene when the children may not even realize their private moment is being lovingly captured.
