Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs by Sally Mann
Sally Mann is one of our most important contemporary photographers. One valuable aspect of the book is Mann’s willingness to describe why an artist might photograph one thing and not another, and how one decides that an image works. Some of her photographs are controversial, but, as the book review says, “In lyrical prose and startlingly revealing photographs, she crafts a totally original form of personal history that has the page-turning drama of a great novel but is firmly rooted in the fertile soil of her own life.” This book was a National Bood Award finalist and is full of breathtaking photographs.
