    Any S.F Bay Area photogs seeing Sally Mann tomorrow night?

    Was wondering if any S.F. Bay Area photographers had any plans of attending the Sally Mann lecture at Cowell Theatre tomorrow night (2/12)?

    Hi Jen, Sorry I'll be in Salinas bugging Mateo. You should see his work, it is awesome. He is into all sorts of alternative printing things. One of these days when you have a free day, I'll take you down there.

    Can you give details or direct me to where I might find them? I have no plans to see Mateo.

    Anyone can appreciate a fine print. But it takes a real photographer to appreciate a fine negative.

    Thanks Jon. But 95 bucks?? Geez, maybe I'll go see Mateo instead.

    And what's that bit about "a special edition 5 x 7 archival digital print..." Yikes!!

    I know....$95 is steep but worth it for me, even if I had to scrounge the pennies....I love her work and I look forward to the direct-from-the artist insight and inspiration. I caught Emmet Gowin's lecture through Photo Alliance last year in S.F. (or was that two years ago?) and it was amazing.

    Yeah, I don't quite get the digital print part of her earlier work but, it should be interesting...sort of ironic being that she works with such antiquated equipment and processes. But hey...

    Actually if I weren't working until 6, I might seriously consider it. But I'd never be able to get there on time.

    Would be interested in your review of her presentation if you're willing to share it with us.

    The Sally Mann Lecture

    Sorry it has taken me awhile to get back on how the lecture was.

    After a great introduction by Ted Orland (an old friend of Sally's and the author of Art & Fear, a book I own and which I started but was too scared to read through - ha!) which included how he met her (at the Ansel Adams workshop thirty years ago or so) and an ad that she took out in her local newspaper where she was having a studio sale selling her prints from something like $2-$25, Sally came on.

    She presented a somewhat chronological slide lecture of her life & photography. She showed her first picture ( nudes on a lawn) which almost got her kicked out of college to the Southern landscapes. She's an incredibly intelligent woman, very humble and extremely articulate about WHY she photographs, HOW she photographs. Oh, and she has a phenomenal vocabulary!

    Anyways, she peppered her lecture with tons of humorous anectodes, technical info (always shoots wide open, 8x10 toyo with 300mm lens, preferred developer is Dektol, etc.) and why she shoots what she does: "This is the last picture that I took of the three kids actually. What happened at this point was that the landscapes sort of ambushed the whole family series. It got to the point where I would find a background and as almost an afterthought, I would put the child in it. I guess I got involved, more and more, in doing just landscape photographs. And I started with Virginia."

    I went away from the lecture really inspired and with a better understanding of why she makes the aesthetic decisions she does and how photography really dominates her life. I can say more about the lecture if anyone cares or is a fellow Mann-fan....
