“Sally Mann: Proud Flesh(Aperture/Gagosian, October 2009) investigates the bonds between husband and wife. Exquisitely detailed, intimate, psychologically and emotionally intense, Sally Mann: Proud Fleshengages territory most often inhabited by male artists portraying their wives and female lovers as Mann turns the camera to her husband of 39 years, Larry. Beautiful, textured, and provocative, these unprecedented nude studies neither objectify nor celebrate; rather, they go far under the skin to suggest a relationship between man and woman that is profoundly trusting: sensual, sexual, sometimes painful, often indescribably tender, and always unblinkingly honest.”
