Was on vacation so missed this when it originally aired - such a great read. If you're interested in #photography and especially Sally Mann's photography, make some time for this New York Times Magazine feature. Looks great on a tablet too.
What an artist captures, what a mother knows and what the public sees can be dangerously different things.

Art! Photography! Stunning!
Worried your eyes are playing tricks on you? They’re not. These beautiful pieces are all photos, a widely accepted artistic discipline.
