HOLD STILL—keep going is the long-awaited reprint of the catalogue to Robert Frank’s 2001 exhibition of the same name at Museum Folkwang in Essen. The book explores the role of film in Frank’s work, and the interaction between the still and moving image that has engaged him since the late 1950s. HOLD STILL—keep going adopts a non-chronological approach, including photographs, film-stills, 35mm filmstrips, as well as photo-montages that present his most famous series alongside less known work. Text, from hand-written phrases on photographs (of which “HOLD STILL—keep going” is but one example) to the dialogues in his films, emerges as a crucial tool, one also central to Frank’s photo-diaries which comprise his most recent experiments in bookmaking.
