    So people from Birmingham can't sing either? Ozzy did play a pretty mean guitar when he could still remember how.

    Perhaps it was this lens. I've always liked Mann's work of her children, neighbors and her husband in that it is all very personal and that she used an 8x10 to do it over an extended period of time. Of course, I dig the whole Southern, gothic, romantic thing as well. I was not familiar with her color work and find it really beautiful. If you like seeing photographers at work you should watch the video about her, "What Remains: The Life and Work of Sally Mann."

    I am not really a fan of her early family portraits, but her later work including these landscapes is superb. I think Mann is really about feeling, personal feelings, feeling of a place etc... and that's what differentiates her work from a lot of other photographers work. Her photographs recreate the feeling of a place or a past event, as opposed to most landscape photography that is about reproducing the place not the feeling.
    I second Thom suggestion the What remains docu is a must see. I also believe that she used an old uncoated lens that doesn't cover the film format for this work.

    ive seen it, multiple times haha. I agree her work is more about feeling, thats why its more fine art photography then "portrait" or "landscape"

    She was called America's best photographer for her "Immediate Family" series. "Yucatan" is not that series.
    Surely, in 1999, Kodak didn't make a film that just had that look?

    Pbryld you can get this kind of results with any color negative film, she shot into the light with an old uncoated lens that has seen better days, she seems to have overexposed her shots by quiet a lot and I don't know how fresh the film was.

    From the look the film was made in 1979, exposed in 1999.

    I have no "sense and respect" because I disagree with your aesthetic? Nice dose of arrogance, champ.
