An interesting study on artistic purpose as well as life and death captured on film.
Audience Reviews for What Remains: The Life and Work of Sally Mann
Wow, what a spectacular woman Sally Mann is. She's very intelligent and immensely talented. I was first introduced to her work when I saw the series she did of her children. Amazing. The documentary chronicles her time creating her "Death Series," which is another thought-provoking feat. And her views toward death are surprisingly refreshing as well. Plus, where and how she lives resonates so much with me. She's an inspiration indeed.
Inspirational. The generous vulnerability with which Sally Mann shares her life and heart is so organic and genuine -- both in her art and in the interviews of this documentary. As a mother/artist trying to find balance in a world full of compartmentalization, I so appreciate Sally Mann's philosophy of art: "...unless you photograph what you love, you are not going to make good art...it's always been my philosophy to try to make art out of the everyday and ordinary--it never occurred to me to leave home to make art." The often-photographed children of this sometimes controversial artist are also interviewed, bearing testimony to the effects of such a unique upbringing. In one particular segment, a window into the torment that even an established, revered artist can experience in the face of rejection was opened and presented with gentle honesty, a robust--yet fragile--heart. Warning: Nudity
