I have a real issue with anyone trying to protect children from their own imaginations. If we cannot acknowledge that a lot of us have a bit of darkness within ourselves, some more than others perhaps, and bring it into the light and examine it and talk about this part of the human condition, then I think we will be living in quite a dangerous climate. I think that’s much more damaging for children.

Sally Mann’s solo exhibition at Fotografiska covers her work from the 1970s to today - her notorious portraits of her own children from Immediate Family, her early landscapes from the American South, and the ongoing, painfully personal series Proud Flesh of her husband Larry’s struggle with a serious illness - including Mann’s documentary photos from Body Farm, a place in Tennessee where human corpses are left on the ground to decompose. These pictures are from the series What Remains.
