Sally Mann’s solo exhibition at Fotografiska covers the notorious portrayals of her own children from Immediate Family, her early landscapes from the American South, and the ongoing, painfully personal series Proud Flesh of her husband Larry’s struggle with a serious illness. The exhibition also includes Mann’s intimate documentary photos from Body Farm, a place in Tennessee where human corpses are left on the ground to decompose. The bodies were donated for the purpose of studying decomposition under various conditions. These pictures are part of the photographic series What Remains.
