Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs


A revealing and fantastically written memoir and kin historical past from acclaimed photographer Sally Mann.
In this groundbreaking ebook, a distinct interaction of narrative and snapshot, Mann's preoccupation with kin, race, mortality, and the storied panorama of the yankee South are published as nearly genetically predetermined, written into her DNA through the kin historical past that precedes her.
Sorting via containers of family members papers and yellowed images 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, monstrous 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 kind of own heritage that has the page-turning drama of a very good novel yet is firmly rooted within the fertile soil of her personal existence.
