Francesca Woodman - Photography
Francesca Woodman...such a tragic loss to the photography world. Wish I could be in NYC for the show.
Reconsidering the Sylvia Plath of the Photo World
Francesca Woodman - I really like how the artist has managed to create a macabre and ghostly atmosphere within their photograph by getting the sitter to move almost as if they are attempting to shield themselves from the daylight streaming through the open window. I also feel like the scene of destruction within the image, littered all over the floor, also adds to the idea of spirits and the macabre atmosphere.
Francesca Woodman, I like the style of Woodman's images, they have a dreamy quality to them due to the longer exposure.
