Artist Research: Sally Mann

Sally Mann is an American photographer, best known for her large black and white photographs of young children. then later for her landscapes suggesting decay and death.
The image I chose to show is very powerful, and is something I feel strongly about as there is so much emotion within. The placement of the adults hands on the small child’s body, one on the pulse (neck) and the other slightly holding the hand. The skinny body and closed eyes show a sense of death and helplessness.
