This week, photography blog Subjectify is featuring a serialized interview with Jessie Mann, daughter of photographer Sally Mann (Season One) and the subject of much of her mother’s work. (That’s Jessie with her brother and sister, in Sally Mann’s 1989 photo, “Emmett, Jessie, and Virginia.”)

In the interview, Jessie talks about Self Possessed, her collaborative project with photographer Len Prince, examining the role of the subject in art.

Installments of the interview will be published on Subjectify throughout the week.
