4.0 out of 5 stars 12 11 Feb 2003
Format:Paperback
Having known Sally Mann's work in immediate family I was startled when I opened this book of images. I had a fair idea of what to expect, but i had no idea that such beauty and imagination could possibly be put into such images whilst still having a natural look to them. The stance of her subjects, shows the subjects at ease with her, as much as you'd expect, whilst it is perfectly obvious of the period in life that these young girls are going through. Not yet old enough to be a women and too old to be a child. An amazing time for any child and yet so confusing. Sally Mann has focused on this and shown it amazingly well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A work of art 12 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Sally Mann has captured on film the vunerability of young women who do not yet fully comprehend the world they are born into. She exposes them as they are...immature...yet beginning TO mature. Fearless....yet fearful. The photographs in this book possess a haunting quality which stays with the reader long after the book has been put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars profound, disturbing, beautiful 16 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Sally Mann is one of the most important photographers of the past decade. Her photographs evoke a profound experience of both a personal and a social psychology of the feminine. Her pictures include concerns about puberty and sexuality as well as motherhood and family. How does an artist describe what she truly loves without reducing the person to an aesthetic subject. How does a mother relate to her daughters without denying their autonomy and complexity. These questions are raised again and again in Mann's work. The photographs are muted, sad and beautiful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Expensive mistake 11 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I bought this book hoping it was the publication of Immediate Family 2. Unfortunately I was wrong. If you saw the two books without knowing the autor, you would never guess, it was the very same. I have to say, that I am surpriced about the fact, that Sally Mann would make so different books. While Immediate Family has a lot of interesting, obscure pictures, there is nothing of this in At 12. The book is boring and disappointing, and the small number of pages does not explain the high price. Don't waste your time on this publication. You should rather be satisfied with just owning Immediate Family.

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
an inner glimpse of the realm of femaletwelve year olds, of the 60's - 80's, on the cusp of leaving childhood. especially insightful when re-viewed, after reading the text!
