Family Resemblance 

In her world, subjects appear larger than life and older than time. This fall, the Reynolds Gallery presents the work of an internationally acclaimed artist: Sally Mann. Wielding a camera lens and an obsolete, accident-prone development process sure to send a shiver up your spine, Mann returns to her haunting and celebrated "Immediate Family" series. The ancient and eerily familiar visages on the large-scale photographs are the faces of Mann's own children -- but you'd never know it. Standing before the work, you struggle to define: close-up portrayal of warmth and intimacy or anonymous death mask? You be the judge.
