Francesca Woodman

Just until last year, the images by Francesca Woodman had never been seen. Woodman was a young, American, photographer who worked from the 1970’s until the 1980’s. She was attending the Rhode Island School for Design, where the bulk of her works were produced. Although Woodman was just a young student, her photography has been highly recognized and appreciated since her passing.

Most of her works are limited to black and white self portraits with a soft feeling of uneasiness. Woodman’s ongoing themes of surrealism and suffering youth are quite dominate in her works, and contribute to the uneasy mood she creates. Due to her experimentation with long exposures, the ghostly figures carry a sense of haziness, which compliment the themes as well as captivate the viewer.

Here are some pieces from Woodman’s body of work. Lets appreciate past artists and hopefully allow them to influence and inspire the works we are creating today!
