Biography

Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs


A revealing and wonderfully written memoir and relations background from acclaimed photographer Sally Mann.
In this groundbreaking ebook, a special interaction of narrative and photograph, Mann's preoccupation with relatives, race, mortality, and the storied panorama of the yank South are printed as nearly genetically predetermined, written into her DNA by means of the kin historical past that precedes her.
Sorting via packing containers of kinfolk 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 kinfolk land . . . racial issues, tremendous sums of cash made and misplaced, the go back of the prodigal son, and even perhaps bloody murder."
In lyrical prose and startlingly revealing photos, she crafts a absolutely unique kind of own heritage that has the page-turning drama of a good novel yet is firmly rooted within the fertile soil of her personal lifestyles.
