Francesca Woodman

I recently watched a documentary about Francesca and I had no idea she even existed before I saw it on Netflix. I think most photographers know of her, but since I’m not in that world I was ignorant. She’s basically a young girl who was brilliant but unrecognized and very mentally ill. In order to do the type of work she did, she had to constantly be raw and in process – going somewhere. When her life put a stop to things temporarily it’s like the wheels came off of her car and she killed herself. Her pictures became very popular among photography hopefuls. She’s got this vibe that advertisements strive to be now, way before anyone else caught on.

Here are some snaps:
