Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Francesca Woodman was an American photographer best known for her black and white pictures featuring herself and female models. She spent the most part of her childhood in Italy in the Florentine countryside, where she lived in an old farm with her parents, who were also artists.

Her older brother Charles later became an associate professor of electronic artshow more
