An Evening With Sally Mann

Sally Mann is one of America’s most renowned photographers. The recipient of numerous awards, including NEA, NEH, and Guggenheim Foundation grants, her work is held by major institutions internationally. In Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs, Mann combines lyrical prose and startlingly revealing photographs to explore her preoccupation with family, race, mortality, and the storied landscape of the American South. Mann travels through her childhood in the Blue Ridge Mountains and her life as a mother, wife, and photographer with finely-crafted insight and honest revelation. The Huffington Post calls Hold Still, “. . . an exquisite memoir…it is foremost a literary achievement, showing Mann to be as ingenious with words as she is with a camera.”
