Sally Mann is a renowned American photographer mostly known for her black-and-white photography. Familiar subjects like family and landscapes are rendered in disconcerting ways that are controversial to many people.

This publication design features her photo series The Body Farm that shows the process of decomposition of human bodies donated to The University of Tennessee. While highlighting her unique style and controversial approach to the art of storytelling through photography, the design visualizes the dark and mysterious nature of the subject matter. Handmade typography mirrors the earthiness of her photo series and seamlessly integrates with the visuals of death and decay.
