Presented by Malcolm Daniel, the Gus and Lyndall Wortham Curator, department of photography

On opening day, curator Malcolm Daniel introduces Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings—the first major career retrospective of photographer Sally Mann’s powerful, hauntingly beautiful work.

Throughout her four-decade career, Mann has experimented with the medium of photography in unorthodox ways. “Torn from Time Itself” shows how and why Mann utilizes 19th-century photographic processes and antique equipment. The lecture illustrates her embrace of technical flaws and serendipitous accidents to help reinforce the meaning of her pictures as she explores overarching themes of existence: memory, desire, death, and the bonds of family.
