Francesca woodman

Photography // Wednesday, May 14, 2014
Often referred to as the Sylvia Plath of photography, Francesca Woodman’s photographs are filled with emotion and are beautifully haunting. With her use of motion blur, odd objects, and seemingly abandoned locations, each photograph holds an element of eerie mystery. Woodman reportedly created over 10,000 negatives until the time of her death when she committed suicide at the age of 22 in 1981.

Now at SF MOMA: Francesca Woodman

Erotica // Monday, November 21, 2011
Francesca Woodman was a young American photographer who built an amazingly rich and complex body of work in her mere 22 years on earth. Committing suicide in 1981, her photographs remain startlingly modern and immediate, exploring femininity, female subjectivity, and a deep personal vision. A retrospective of her work is now on display at SF MOMA until February 20, 2012.

Erotica // Wednesday, November 09, 2011
No sparkling sunrises in sight, the first Francesca Woodman retrospective had to unfold in the Fall when the haunting is subtle but pervasive. Slowly crumbling walls like falling  leaves are not swept away, but  form the soil from which many of her subjects take root Swathed in sepia, the black and white prints – save the large scale blueprints at the end of the exhibit - are surprisingly small, inviting  inspection and introspection.
