  16. 27. Inspiration <ul><li>&quot;...If it doesn’t have ambiguity, don’t bother to take it. I love that, that aspect of photography—the mendacity of photography—it’s got to have some kind of peculiarity in it or it’s not interesting to me.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>-Sally Mann </li></ul><ul><li>Sally Mann is definitely not what is considered your traditional photographer however because of her unnerving contemporary style she has capture the attention of millions around the world. I feel Mann was most inspired by unfathomable depths of ambiguous emotions and feelings found within the human spirit. Which she felt needed to be explored, experimented, and expressed in her photos. Mann in an interview stated that she had a “magpie aesthetic- I just go and I pick up whatever is around.” This shows that indirectly Mann’s inspirations came from a combination of her environment and her interest leading the mystical, unnerving and innocent style of Mann. </li></ul>
  17. 28. Art Criticism
  18. 29. Description <ul><li>Black and White </li></ul><ul><li>Landscape </li></ul><ul><li>Foreground </li></ul><ul><ul><li>subject: tree </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Background </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fence and more trees </li></ul></ul>
  19. 30. Analysis <ul><li>In this particular photo Mann uses a strong foreground and contributing background with a single tree as the subject and main focus in the foreground. To emphasize the contributing background Mann blurs the background only leaving the single tree in clear focus. The lighting also contribute to highlight the silhouette of the tree. </li></ul>
  20. 31. Interpretation <ul><li>This piece has a strong sense of death and decay or at the very least a sense of underlying gloom. Mann wanted to focus on the land and the history that comes with it. Evidence of this is shown as the tree is damaged and placed in front of a fence. </li></ul>
  21. 32. Judgment <ul><li>I feel this photo is successful in how it manipulates the elements and principles of art creating a define mood and atmosphere which is difficult to add to a landscape. Lighting and technique are the best factor. </li></ul>
  22. 33. Question <ul><li>Who did Sally marry? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lemont Mann </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Larry Mann </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Jacob Mann </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bill Mann </li></ul></ul>
