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."

Editorial Reviews

Review

Austrian photographer Jork Weismann reminds us that, in addition to being a preferred location for celebrity profiles and late-night debauchery, the Chateau Marmont is also a place to get some shut-eye. Some of the somnolent noteworthies in his portraits look truly conked-out, while others adopt amusingly contrived poses (owner André Balazs on a couch with a naked woman curled up on the floor) - which, come to think of it, sums up the expeirence of being at the legendary Hollywood hotel nicely.

Format: Hardcover
This is the dumbest vanity project ever to be conceived. Often, coffee table books are fairly strange or singular in their concept but this one takes the cake.

The photos are staged and overly cutesey. It appears as if the artist and his friends invaded The Chateau one night and were like, 'hey ... Let's pretend to sleep and take photos'. The poses are totally unnatural. You can practically hear the photographer directing, 'Okay ... Now the guy get in between the two girls. Perfect. Kiss him on the cheeks a few time to leave some lipstick. Okay, cue the dopey grin.'click click click

This wouldn't even be nearly as tacky if it actually had some good background shots of the Chateau. However these are D, F, G ... Y, Z list 'celebrities' ... Most you wouldn't even recognize. They are just a collection of Hollywood party kids strewn about in unmade beds.

I really can't imagine what the publisher was thinking here. The concept is dumb ... The layout is bad ... The photos are staged and 'fake artsy' ... And even the printing/binding is cheap.

James Franco laughs at this book from a vanity project point of view.
