Fantastic article. She puts so much of herself into her pictures. It was very interesting to hear her husband's perspective too, and really incredible to understand how she thinks good portraits are made - by sacrifice of the sitter. That profoundly spoke to me.

This was a "driveway moment" for me, as I pulled up to my house in the dusk. I love the way both she and her husband talk about her work in this piece, and the slideshow on the website is great. Thanks for posting it.
For me she will only be a sensation photographer that want to shock the world by prostituting her children (and her husband). Cant understand how her husband allow it. Her attempt to photographe "death" either through the body farm or digging up her poor dog and photograph the remains is just sick.
She will never be a great photographer according to me, just a person who try to make herself a name by being as repulsive as possible.
I say as Banksy said about Mr Brainwash (dont get me started about him) "Uhmmm... You know... it was at that point that I realized that maybe Thierry wasn't actually a film maker, and he was maybe just someone with mental problems who happened to have a camera. "
Just replace Thierry with Sally and you are spot on.
According to me she should be serving time for child pornography, period.
