Sally Mann was born in 1951 in Lexington, Virginia, where she continues to live and work. She received a BA from Hollins College in 1974, and an MA in writing from the same school in 1975. She studied photography at the Praestegaard Film School, the Aegean School of Fine Arts, Apeiron, and the Ansel Adams Yosemite Workshop.

Her early series of photographs of her three children and husband resulted in a series called "Immediate Family." The work created an extreme controversy, it gained notoriety for it's nude photographs of her own children.

Some groups called her work child pornography. These condemnations have not hurt her career however. Her photographs appear in most major American art museums. Mann's most recent work have been of rural and unpopulated areas of Virginia, most of her recent work is untitled, and in a collection labeled "Deep South".
