As I studied each page my memory was jogged several times of my childhood in southern Georgia. Humid sunny days and muggy rainy evenings; I couldn't wait to strip what little bit of cloths I wore and play outside in the rain or in the woods. I never gave it a second thought being nude. And apparently neither did my parents. Needless to say Sally Mann and her beloved childern are dear to my heart. Thanks for bring back so many innocent fond memories.
I recommend this book if you have an open mind and love children for what they are.
Sally Mann is wonderful at capturing the souls of those she photographs, often poor, rural-living individuals, full of pride and hopes and dreams. I have collected many of her books, and this has always been my favorite. It's very controversial - her work always has been - but if you look at it with your eye on that cusp of womanhood, you will see more than you ever dreamed.
Sally Mann is a true visionary photographer who will certainly be hailed in the years to come as one of the greatest photographers of her time.
I am not one bit sorry that I bought the book. Yes, the photos are less "artistic" than Immediate Family, and yes, the book is more blunt in its subject matter, which makes it more painful and not as protective of the children. However, it absolutely captures being 12 and girl-woman - in all of the painful, stubborn, beautiful, childish, and grown-up ways that being 12 actually is.

The cover photo is a bit misleading as this 16 X 16 book contains 36 black and white photos of gals who are 12-years old. None are too revealing, there is one in a swim suit. Read morePublished on April 12, 2014 by ellison
Interesting photos. The shots taken are works of art. To capture beauty in such a way takes a delicate eye.Published on February 6, 2014 by aShopper
The photography in this book was excellent - reminiscent of Jock Sturges, sans nudity. The portraits are of individuals and families in what reminds me of rural America in a time... Read morePublished on April 21, 2013 by Christopher Ohn
