    you forgot to mention
    these are people he has/had been photographing for 10-15 years
    or maybe longer ... they weren't strangers but good friends

    ... and with an 8x10 camera so there is no sneaking possible.

    ... plus he was most often in the nude himself, so where would he hide a camera?

    No, not yet. I'm not even sure that I aspire to be one. I describe myself as one who has conservative Christian beliefs and despite regular participation in a major traditional corporate religion... I don't let that get in the way of my faith no matter how cynical I seem (or are)(or am).

    Some of his models are second (and maybe even 3rd) generation models - children and perhaps grandchildren of the very first women he photographed. I think he's been doing this since the 80s, so almost 30 years now.

    thanks scott,

    i knew he did this for a long time, but i wasn't quite sure how long it was ...
    and it is kind of strange how people equate his work with being a peeping tom
    or a voyeur when he was considered almost part of the families he photographed ...

    but then again i know of someone in the boston area who was a photographer
    and photographed her child, and brought her film to a lab for process only ...
    the lab worker saw the negatives, made contact prints and called the police on her ...
    this is kind of out there for a lab worker, seeing i know others who worked at the same lab
    who used to print and process "pºrn" for people who dropped it off.

    That kind of thing has happened many places, where parents have been arrested for photographing their babies in the bathtub. Its absolute silliness. A little common sense goes a long way in evaluating if a baby in the bathtub is being photographed for prurient purposes.

    What do people think about the ethics of Sally Mann’s photographs?

    “The contemplation of things as they are, without error or confusion, without substitution or imposture, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention”

    Francis Bacon

    i agree it is kind of crazy and common sense goes a long way ..
    this wasn't in a bathtub or an infant though, but a child at the beach
    i never saw the photos, only heard about them ..

    at the time this happened ( mid 1990s ) there was a huge uproar about this ...
    dcyf threatened to take the kid from the parents ( from what i remember )
    and the woman who was a well known and respected photographer ended up on
    national tv shows and eventually got a degree in law ( from harvard ? ).
    and the lab, which was a well known pro-lab was in the public eye regarding privacy &c.
    i am friends of mutual friends and don't really remember what happened
    after the dust settled ..

    I don't think I've eaten that many ducks in my whole life. What does one do with so many? How many ducks does one hunter shoot in a year or season?
