Francesca Woodman




The artist focuses on the female body, and the feminine subjectivity. Woodman uses objects such as mirrors, flowers or gloves and these are meticulously placed in ruined places and the female body appears, sometimes as a ghostly figure due to photography long exposures. 


Francesca Woodman was born April 3, 1958, in Denver, Colorado.
On January 19, 1981, she committed suicide by jumping out a loft window in New York. An acquaintance wrote, "things had been bad, there had been therapy, things had gotten better, guard had been let down.
