This work belongs to a series that Mann titled Motherland, which has a double meaning: First, these pictures were made on or around the Virginia farmlands where she grew up. Second, it obliquely refers to the series she had just completed: intimate, provocative images of her children’s coming-of-age, which gained her praise and notoriety. Mann toned this print in tea, giving it a vaguely nineteenth-century feel that evokes the past and present simultaneously.
