It was a pleasure to meet both Sally and Virginia Mann, at the "Sally Mann in conversation with Camilla Brown" session at the National Portrait Gallery last week. The conversation was very engaging. The main topics of discussion centered around "What remains", "Immediate Family" and the wet plate collodian technique followed by a lively discussion on Mann's new body of work which evolves around the theme of slavery/racism/religion. Six "work-in-progress" images were shown for the first time and the London audience were invited to respond. Sally Mann: "The Family and the Land" exhibition is on at The Photographers Gallery London until 19th September 2010.
