“As ephemeral as our footprints were in the sand along the river, so also were those moments of childhood caught in the photographs. And so will be our family itself, our marriage, the children who enriched it, and the love that has carried us through so much. All this will be gone. What we hope will remain are these pictures telling our brief story, but what will last, beyond all of it, is the place.” — Sally Mann, Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs
A Special Lecture by Sally Mann
Sally Mann, one of America’s most renowned photographers, recently released her much-anticipated memoir Hold Still (Little, Brown and Company) to high acclaim. Patricia Wall of the New York Times compares Mann with none other than Walker Evans, stating, “I held Evans’s writing in mind while reading Hold Still, the photographer Sally Mann’s weird, intense and uncommonly beautiful new memoir. Ms. Mann has got Evans’s gift for fine and offbeat declaration.” Wall closes her review with, “The best quality of Hold Still — a book that strikes me as an instant classic among Southern memoirs of the last 50 years — is its ambient sense of an original, come-as-you-are life that has been well lived and well observed. It’s a book that dials open the aperture on your own senses. Like the photographs she most admires, it is rooted in particulars yet has ‘some rudiment of the eternal in it.’”
For this special presentation, artist Sally Mann reads from Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs.
Come early for a book signing at 6 pm. Pre-order your book here.
