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

Paris Changing is an invitation to a nostalgic voyage, or, to a long Paris weekend, during which you can use the photographs as a guide and return to New York with fresh eyes. -- New York Times, October 28, 2007

In Paris Changing Christopher Rauschenberg retraces the footsteps of French documentarian Eugene Atget in 1898. The two men's photos are shown side-by-side, revealing the city's eternal elegance and its modern developments. -- Travel + Leisure, December 2007

"[Rauschenberg] photographs the older parts of the city that anyone who loves Paris will enjoy poring over in this attractive volume." (January 2008) --Art New England

Review

"The compendium of the photographer's oeuvre during the belle epoque is an enchanting catalog of the city's streets, parks, neighborhoods, shops...in rich duotones that you'll want to reach out and touch." (1/1/08)

Format: Hardcover
Last summer I saw the Atget exhibit at the Bibliotheque Nationale, which was a marvelous passage through a lost time. This book matches some of those absorbing old photos with photos of the same location taken today. I think it's a fascinating book and I can lose myself in the nuances while comparing the photos. This pasttime may not be to everyone's taste, but I highly recommend the book to thoughtful people who enjoy looking at things.

What I loved about this was that it was clear about the intent and the project. It carried the spirit of Paris from Atget's work, but had the author's signature look to it as well. I loved that there were maps, and that it was reproduced well. A very helpful book for someone who is planning on visiting Paris. They will see the changes and no doubt come to appreciate the work of these photographers a century apart. .
