A resident of Lexington, Virginia, Sally Mann is considered by many to be one of the leading photographers today. Photographing in the innocent/uninnocent Eden of her lush hometown with a century-old 8 x 10" view camera, Mann has created a tenderly aggresive romanticism, which combines "old-fashioned" magical emotion, mystery and allegory, with present-day reality and toughness.

Still Time ia an expansion of an earlier traveling exhibition of Mann's photographs. It represents both the variety and the unity of her color and black-and-white work over a twenty-five year period. Dream sequences, landscapes, portraits of women and adolescents, near abstractions, and densely graceful psychodramas of her family demonstrate what Mann in one of her own poems has called "this terrible heart: creator of angels and demons."
