Hold Still by Sally Mann
Hold Still by Sally Mann
Acclaimed photographer Sally Mann sorted through boxes of family papers and old pictures to find "deceit and scandal, alcohol, domestic abuse, car crashes, bogeymen, clandestine affairs, dearly loved and disputed family land ... racial complications, vast sums of money made and lost, the return of the prodigal son, and maybe even bloody murder."

After viewing this book, it changed the way I look at objects around me in my daily life. I SEE FACES EVERYWHERE! It's quite an experience. Try it.

Format: Paperback
As soon as I looked at the first few pages of this book I was hooked, from cover to cover this book is packed with an imaginitive look on the world and shows over 130 faces in places you would'nt have dreamed of looking for any meaning what-so-ever.
My advice to anyone who has'nt got this book is to obtain one as soon as possible, this book simply has a fun outlook on the moderm world.

Format: Paperback
A bell back looks sadly: it is the arc-shaped sad mouth (to fast or slow the clock's internal spring), the nose is the rotary button for minutes, the eyelid-heavy eyes are the dropped rotary buttons for clockwork and wake-noise. A brown brief case opens its zipper like a clumsy civil servant, a branch cut shear reminds rather of penguins from Patagonien as to the market garden, where it was robbed visually. After few exercise minutes one recognizes, that for many things a human face is the subtle designed basis. Radios and little house fronts, brushes, kitchen utensils, measuring tools: though produced for technical work, they nevertheless in a subtle way shake and wake that human in us, which was lost apparently. Was the plug socket designer sad, when he drew, wanting to give us secretly references on a work dead end offering no prospects with small wages? The manufacturer of the measuring instruments - did he miss to be surrounded by animals at his assembly-line?

The selection of the photographers Francois and Jean Robert pulled to the light, which was meant perhaps only as anonymous report - or did not even turn out for the creators in consciousness, because their subconsciousness (Unterbewusstsein, Sigmund Freud), before being pushed and blocked up by the reasonable control, broke through: uncensored like dreams, which sometimes bring up for discussion, what they want instantly, (and not what our overcautious political correctness is demanding). The world of the emotional expressions, which was lost in the arms of technology - this lost world seems to have in-crept secretly back into the tiny articles, like doing a soul migration as known by the Hindus, - the purchase products seem to have been inspired like African art, propelled by a magic, pre-religious charm.

A lot of laughs! A lot of fun! This shows that one can see a lot of fun things out there in the world if one just opens his eyes and exercises his imagination a bit. An excellent birthday gift for someone who is already into art.
