    Mann’s World.

    American photographer Sally Mann has just published her memoirs in the beautifully told Hold Still. Recounting family, her sprawling rural property in the Virginia hills and controversy surrounding her work.

    Mann is best-known for her controversial Immediate Family (1992) book of photographs. Depicting her three young children in black and white, this series of portraits often featured her brood in states of undress, or as wildlings emerged from the forest surrounding their home. In this collection of memoirs, Mann recalls the period of time when she was being accused of being an unfit mother, or worse - of shooting child pornography.
    She also details her upbringing, her friendships with other Virginia writers and artists, race issues growing up and her major life experiences in a series of carefully crafted, richly textured anecdotes. Sprinkled amid the prose, and between her own landscapes and portraits, are powerful glimpses of Mann taken by photographer friends. An insightful glimpse into an intriguing life.
