Hold Still
A Reading with Sally Mann

Sally Mann, a 2007 LOOK3 Featured Artist, returns in 2015 to LOOK3 to read from her memoir Hold Still at the Paramount Theater along the Charlottesville Historic Downtown Mall. 

"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.'"
—Dwight Garner, The New York Times
