Review Text

"Since her untimely death in 1981 at the age of 23, Francesca Woodman has become something of a cult figure, inspiring a trail of young photographers and being selected for biennials and museum shows. The first monograph to document her work reproduces 250 pictures - many new discoveries - and excerpts form her journals." —Art Review
