Thursday on All Things Considered, Melissa Block spends some time with renowned photographer Sally Mann. Find the whole interview here.

Mann works exclusively with a large-format view camera and typically focuses on the people and family around her — controversial images of her children in the 1990s and lately, the focus has been her husband.

In this video, Mann discusses a recently curated collection of her work that focuses on images of the body. It includes her series Proud Flesh, an examination of her husband's struggle with muscular dystrophy.
