American photographer Sally Mann is best known for her black and white photographs of landscapes and her own family members. The upcoming Contemporary Art Auction, offered by Leland Little, features an untitled 1997 landscape print from Mann’s Mother Land: Virginia Series. The tea-toned, gelatin silver print was captured with damaged old lenses and printed with the wet collodion technique.
Award-winning feminist photographer Tomoko Sawada is known for her self-portraits satirizing contemporary stereotypes. She makes use of photo booths and her studio to take portraits that resemble identification cards. The auction presents the Cover/Face series of 20 chromogenic prints by Sawada. The collection explores the influence of Western culture on beauty trends among Japanese youth. The dark tan and contrasting bright makeup shown in the photos was a popular fashion trend among Japanese women during the mid-1990s. Also showcased are works by artists such as Alex Prager, Muzi Quawson, Thomas Daniel, and Tom Fabritius. Interested collectors can explore the complete listings and register to bid online on Leland Little.
