Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs


A revealing and fantastically written memoir and relations heritage from acclaimed photographer Sally Mann.
In this groundbreaking publication, a special interaction of narrative and photograph, Mann's preoccupation with kin, race, mortality, and the storied panorama of the yank South are printed as virtually genetically predetermined, written into her DNA by way of the family members heritage that precedes her.
Sorting via bins of kin papers and yellowed pictures she unearths greater than she bargained for: "deceit and scandal, alcohol, family abuse, automobile crashes, bogeymen, clandestine affairs, dearly enjoyed and disputed kin land . . . racial problems, large sums of funds made and misplaced, the go back of the prodigal son, and even perhaps bloody murder."
In lyrical prose and startlingly revealing pictures, she crafts a absolutely unique type of own historical past that has the page-turning drama of a superb novel yet is firmly rooted within the fertile soil of her personal existence.
