Sally Mann, "Candy Cigarette" | one of my favorite photographs |
Untitled (Juliet in White Chair) (from At Twelve) by Sally Mann / From At Twelve, Sally Mann's intimate study of American girlhood, this arresting image features a young person on the cusp of transition. The titular adolescent sits slumped in a white chair, barefoot and in a bathing suit. Wearing a sullen expression, she personifies adolescent reticence, posing for the camera but resistant to it at the same time.

With the publication of her third book of pictures, "Immediate Family" (Aperture, 1992), Sally Mann leapt from relative obscurity to a level of national celebrity that only a handful of photographers have ever achieved, in this case mostly unwanted. The book included, among other pictures, several images of her three young children, two girls and a boy, in the nude, as was their wont as they ranged around the family's isolated farm in Rockbridge County, Va.
