Sally Mann
I couldn't be Susan Sontag. I'm not very good with abstract thought. I always just take to the emotional core of me.
Sally Mann
When you look at your life as an artist, you do see that when you get to be 60, you're coming - this is the last chapter.
Sally Mann
I taught up in Maine a couple of times and wasn't able to take a single picture. All that blue sky! Ugh. Sparkling clear air, just terrible. I couldn't do it.
Sally Mann
I have three libraries. As a gift, a friend alphabetized and organized my main library of novels, history books, and nonfiction. Then I have a photo-book collection. Then there's this nearly whole room of my childhood books. I've also got cookbooks and a big collection of horse-related books.
Sally Mann
I have had a fascination with death, I think, that might be considered genetic for a long time. My father had the same affliction, I guess.
Sally Mann
I'm not an ardent feminist - well, maybe I am an ardent feminist. I just roll my eyes at the way women are constantly used and how sensitive men are about photographs of themselves.
Sally Mann
Increasingly, the work I'm doing is in service to an idea rather than just to see what something looks like photographed. I'm trying to explore how I feel about something through photography.
Sally Mann
Time, memory, loss and love are my main artistic concerns, but time, among all of them, becomes the determinant.

Sally Mann
The thing that makes writing so difficult is you don't have the element of serendipity. At least with a photograph, you can set up the camera, and something might happen. You might be a lousy photographer, but you can get a good picture if you just take enough of them.
Sally Mann
I feel I'm a strange mixture of insecurity and strength. Most of us, probably most people. I'm transferring that same concept to the people I photograph.
Sally Mann
I work all the time. I never leave home. I mean, I just stay honed in on what's ahead.

When I read something, I picture that scene in that detail. That becomes very similar to composing a photo in real life.
Sally Mann
You start blocking out things, and that's a really important part of taking a picture is the ability to isolate what you're - what you're concentrating on.
Sally Mann
It's not a lack of confidence, because I can't argue with the fact that I've taken some good pictures. But it's just a raw fear that you've taken the last one.
Sally Mann
When we were on the farm, we were isolated, not just by geography but by the primitive living conditions: no electricity, no running water and, of course, no computer, no phone.
