Between Pictures and Words: Sally Mann’s Hold Still
Polish Journal for American Studies, vol. 11 (Spring 2017), pp. 147-162

Abstract: Sally Mann’s autobiography Hold Still is a rare book which examines from the point of view of a photographer the way literature and photography complement each other in creating complex artistic visions. At the same time, it is not merely a famous artist’s autobiography, but an artful literary creation in its own right. The paper examines the nature of relations between literature and Sally Mann’s photography.

Key words: photography, autobiography, memoire, Sally Mann, Hold Still
