Sally Mann is renowned for her work exploring the beauty and complexities of family, motherhood, memory, and the history of the American South. From 1985 to 1994, Mann photographed the coming of age of her three children: Emmett, Jessie, and Virginia. One of the first photographers to explore in depth the psyche and drama of adolescence, Mann’s series, Immediate Family, is an intimate portrait of childhood through the tender eye of a mother. Although the children often directly confront the camera in the series, Sunday Funnies depicts a quiet scene when the children may not even realize their private moment is being lovingly captured.
