"There are a number of things that set Southern artists apart from anyone else. … Their obsession with place and their obsession with family." —Sally Mann

In a new episode from the ART21 Exclusive series, photographer Sally Mann reflects on the life of Virginia Franklin Carter (1894–1994)—a woman who helped raise the artist and her two brothers in Lexington, Virginia. “My parents were important but Virginia may have been the single most important person in my life,” says Mann in the episode, who named her youngest daughter after Carter.

I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully.

Such great advice.  Listening is an art and we really can learn more that way.

General Colin L. Powell proves the old adage “Nothing is new” is very true! He shared this 60 year old photo of himself on his official Facebook page with this caption: “Throwback Thursday - I was doing selfies 60 years before you Facebook folks. Eat your heart out Ellen! The Ellen DeGeneres Show

How fun.
