    Sally Mann was born in Lexington, Virginia, in 1951. She has won numerous awards, including three National Endowment for the Arts fellowships and a Guggenheim fellowship. Her photographs have been exhibited internationally and are in the permanent collections of major museums worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Her past publications include Second Sight, At Twelve, Immediate Family, Still Time, and What Remains. A documentary film about Mann's family pictures was nominated for an Academy Award in 1993. A feature-length follow-up is in development and will air on HBO and the BBC. Mann lives in Virginia.
    The photographs in Deep South, many produced with the nineteenth-century collodion process and a variety of toning techniques, capture what Sally Mann calls the "radical light of the American South." Borrowing methods favored by early masters of landscape photography, Mann bends classic craftsmanship to serve the expressive needs of a heightened contemporary sensibility. Serendipitous technical imperfections, such as light leaks or scratches on negatives, echo the accidental, chaotic workings of time. From ghostly images of historic battlefields to painterly visions of Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, and her native Virginia, Mann's landscape photographs transport the viewer to another time and place.
    Short essays by the photographer open the three main sections of the book, and Mann's writing proves as engaging and poetic as her images. This is the first book solely devoted to Mann's landscape photography, and it is a masterful reinvention of the genre. Printed in tritone to reflect the subtlety and range of Mann's original prints, Deep South evokes the strange beauty of the Southern landscape as seen by one of our preeminent artists.
