"'HOLD STILL―keep going' is the long-awaited reprint of the catalogue to Robert FRANK’s 2001 exhibition of the same name at the Museum Folkwang, in Essen.

The book explores the influence of film on 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." (publisher's note)
