The Great Photographers: Become acquainted with some of history's greatest photographers in this screening and discussion series.
Renowned and occasionally controversial photographer Sally Mann opens up in this moving portrait. More than just a film about a talented artist’s process, this film digs deep into issues of love, life and parenting. Her early work, a collection titled “Immediate Family” focused on the bodies of her young children and challenged many viewers at the time. The follow-up series “What Remains” extends her exploration of life by looking at death, decay and loss. Throughout her career, she finds inspiration near to home. “The things that are close to you are the things you can photograph the best,” Mann remarks. “And unless you photograph what you love, you aren’t going to make good art."
Paul Roth, Director of the Ryerson Image Centre, will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion and Q&A on the work of Sally Mann.
Co-presented by Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, CAPIC, PhotoEd and Stephen Bulger Gallery.
