"There are a number of things that set Southern artists apart from anyone else. … Their obsession with place and their obsession with family." —Sally Mann

In a new episode from the ART21 Exclusive series, photographer Sally Mann reflects on the life of Virginia Franklin Carter (1894–1994)—a woman who helped raise the artist and her two brothers in Lexington, Virginia. “My parents were important but Virginia may have been the single most important person in my life,” says Mann in the episode, who named her youngest daughter after Carter.

It’s unfortunate how short this video is.

People like Martin Parr won’t get a free copy of my book because I don’t like the entire idea of having these mega-gurus who decide what’s good and what’s not. They do not represent the self-publishing scene, but they still dominate it. I think we have to build up a new generation of publishers and stop kissing the asses of yesterday’s authority figures. Self-publishing should be anti-establishment. The way things are going right now narrows down the very broad spectrum of the photography book scene. Look at all the photography blogs, which mention the same 30 – 40 book titles that everyone is mentioning that year. Luckily enough there are also some photography blogs that are really committed to showing you works you would otherwise not see.
