Francesca Woodman - More works
A second post on Francesca Woodman (previous here). You won't learn anything if I tell you this is one of the greatest artist/photographer of last century, and surely one of the most influential on today's photography. Died young (she killed herself in 1981, at 23), these images don't stop to question and fascinate us with their extraordinary mix of ghostly weirdness and realistic intimacy. I don't know why but when I think of Francesca Woodman, I think of Frida Kahlo, maybe this self-affirmation that paved the way for a true equality between men and women concerning art. A selection but I'm sure I'll post a 3rd one in a future (if I'm still alive to do it of course).
