what remains redux

after picking up another roll of medium format film shot in Iceland, i revisited the Sally Mann Exhibition, having been told there was more to see.

To my surprise, there we indeed 2 more rooms full of her photographs depicting the body farm series as well as her other controversial images of her children.

Fighting my way through a class full of kids on a school trip – i could see up close the depth and tragic images of the donated bodies in different states of decay. Having seen these images in the bookshop on my last visit, i was pleased to see these on a larger scale to view and research the skin detail of the corpses shown.
the subdued lighting of course created an eerie atmosphere to see this series.

i didn’t spend a lot of time looking at her family series as this does not particularly interested me, but was a stark contrast with the ‘what remains series’.

having said that i did fall in love with this image
