    The photos you posted look like they coud easily have been taken with the Hipstamatic application on an iPhone (yes, I know they weren't).

    I've seen Sally Mann's work in person and absolutely loved it, I especially adore the ones in her "Immediate Family" series.

    I greatly admire Sally Mann. I like that she is so willing to confront and use process as an important element in here work. She is an artist who is not concerned with taste and is willing to endure new criticism every time she embarks on a new project. Do I like everything she does? No, but all of it interests me, and therefore I don't find her boring.

    About the color, my wife recently shot a roll of Kodak color negative film in a Diana color. I had it processed by a reputable professional lab, and was amazed at the color rendition. I scanned the film for her and I must say the color bore no resemblance to reality or conventional color rendering. So, yeah, lenses can really make a difference.

    BTW, I DON"T like the Hipstmatic application and would never use it... I just don't link gimmicky photos no mater how they are produced.

    Sure, I guess. Or at least "art" others admire. Personally I'd prefer work I hate, at least it stirs a passion within. A friend of mine had a couple of her books. Less than halfway thru I was skipping pages anxious to get to the end and soon as was looking to find another book on the shelf. In particular the ones of her kids in the woods and back country seem contrived to me. And worst of all contrived in a way to try to not look contrived. Maybe that does not make sense...

    Anyway. To each his own of course. When others dislike photographers I like I do not find it a personal affront as many seem to. (not you, others!) :-)

    dagerreotipes seem a nice gimmick... as autocromes, finlaycolor, dufaycolor, photography is a gimmick... and a lie! lie the best you can but don´t foul yourself...

    I love Sally Mann. I also like Hipstamatic on the iPhone. There is a great doc on Sally Mann titled What Remains, where you can see a fair bit of her at work on wet plate.
    The colour photos you refer to were made in the late '90s so she would have had a much wider choice of colour films then than are available now.
