    Rock concert with Sally Mann in Stockholm tomorrow

    ... OK, maybe not a rock concert but it felt like it when I bought the ticket today to an opening of an exhibition here in Stockholm. She will have a talk about her technique and take questions. There were 100 tickets left this afternoon.

    More info

    It was very interesting. It was packed with 500 people that seemed to love her. She was interviewed by the curator of the exhibition and took a lot of questions from the audience, trying to answer really honest on everything for almost two hours.
    She seems to be a really humble person!
    There was so much people, I couldn't see the actual exhibition, though. Hopefully tomorrow.

    For those who can't make it to a Sally Mann exhibit there is an 1 1/2 hour documentary playing this month on Cinemax. "What Remains...the life and work of Sally Mann" It is a very interesting show and will give you a little insight on how she is often misinterpreted. Such as the "Faces" part of the exhibit is not about death masks but just the opposite. Also what enticed her to do the series on death was not the death of her father although it did have an impact. There was a man running from the police and stumbled onto the Mann farm where he committed suicide as the police approached him. That was the episode that triggered the series but it also helped her come to terms with her father's death and death in general. All the work in "What Remains" is wet plate collodion. I think for the exhibit the plates were scanned and printed digitally. Except for the "Faces" part of the exhibit where the actual plates were (or are) on display.

    Glad you all are sharing all of this. My husband & I had just missed the piece on Cinemax a week or so ago and probably won't be able to see it since we don't have Cinemax! Hopefully, it will be available through another means. I'd love to see it!

    Dorothy, I think what I appreciated the most about the documentary was how she allowed us to see and the filmmaker to record a very emotional and very intimate side of her. "What Remains" was canceled at the last minute by a New York Gallery. The show depicts how an artist of even her standing in the art world is effected by rejection and she questions if her work is of any merit. No different than the struggles any of us go through with our art. I've always been a fan of her work but I appreciate it a little more now after seeing the documentary.

    Robert,

    Thanks for posting your views on the Doc. I'm hoping it will be released on DVD soon since I don't have access to Cinemax. Sally is one of my faves...

    Thank you, Robert for sharing your input on the documentary. I too, look forward to viewing this if/when it is available elsewhere.
