A photographic memoir that will appeal to buyers of Vivian Maier, Francesca Woodman, or Sally Mann's Hold Still and Immediate Family. Will appeal to those appreciative of serious photography. A photographic narrative chronicling a turbulent mother-daughter relationship in the serene setting of a beautiful but decrepit Maine home, Frozen in Time is at once beautiful and heart-wrenching.
Sarah Butler's gorgeous photographs tell a poignant story of coming to terms with a difficult mother in a way that is both intimately personal and universally relatable. Drawn to reconnect with her mother after a long estrangement, Butler found that taking photographs allowed her the perspective to understand and respect her mother's choices.
The images, from a pair of little girls' dresses that her mother kept for decades to a corner of the house with its foundation jacked up on a pile of rocks, reveal a complex and compelling psychological narrative.
This is a book about family, distance and reconciliation, and, finally, the beauty found in acceptance.
It is also a stunning visual tour de force that will mesmerise photography aficionados and students of family relations alike.
