Proud Flesh.

Sally Mann‘s new book Proud Flesh is an intimate collection of images 

of her husband that refer to his depressing story of having muscular dystrophy.

The images contain a sensitive view toward the physical nature of his body,

while the process of producing wet-plate collodion negatives 

emphasize the depressing truths of his deteriorating figure.
