    Nah. Not necessary to discuss - she is right.
    She’s a brave woman.

    I think 1/3 of my film gets exposed with images of my dogs, rather than the children. Now that can get dangerous...

    Nice ad for Toyo cameras. 1991. Yikes, that's 31 years go. Her kids must have kids.

    I was just telling my wife the other day that I want to be Sally Mann when I grow up.

    Her landscapes aren't all that safe either, she does not do simple work.

    Portraitures and landscapes lays within your own horizon. Locality makes your statements and in the same time makes you vulnerable. So, let’s agree to disagree.

    Nothing to discuss. Itís straight forward and subjective and thatís all. Flame bait with some dead horse beatings thrown in.

    In all the stills and videos I've seen of Mann working, I've never seen a Toyo camera...
