"Her latest photographic study of her husband Larry Mann, taken over six years, has resulted in a series of candid nude studies of a mature male body that neither objectifies nor celebrates the focus of its gaze. Rather it suggests a profoundly trusting relationship between woman and man, artist and model that has produced a full range of impressions - erotic, brutally frank, disarmingly tender, and ore. While the relation of artist and model is, traditionally, a male-dominated field that has yielded countless appraisals of the female body and psyche, Mann reverses the role by turning the camera on her husband during some of his most vulnerable moments." --Glass Magazine
"Mann is... fearless, never clinical, always loving, and even proud in her portrayal of her husband." -- Stephen Longmire --Afterimage: The Journal of Media Arts and Cultural Criticism
"The series took almost six years to shoot, and reveals a powerfully trusting relationship. Mr. Mann, who suffers from muscular dystrophy, is portrayed in a myriad of manners, suggestive of a relationship of this length - sometimes tenderly, sometimes erotically, at times powerful and godlike, and other times with brutal frankness and vulernability. It is a complete and honest study." -- Anna Carnick, Editor --Clear Magazine

Technically, the prints are gorgeous, the process of getting there extraordinary.
This work is a testament to love; of her husband, of her work.
