Francesca Woodman: On Being an Angel Hardback
"The work of Francesca Woodman lies in the realm of still photography," Woodman's father, George Woodman, writes in On Being an Angel. "Nevertheless, her images using the formal device of a zigzag are anything but still. They are restless pictures filled with motion. The viewer’s glance is never permitted to halt and is urged onward to embrace sequences, consider episodes, submit to rhythms, and confront changes of identities. These images are less tied to the logic of 'presentation,' which is the core of still photography, and more the result of a choreography of images, an artful control of the irrepressible motion within them."
Francesca Woodman was an American photographer best known for her haunting self-portraits in which her body is often blurred or partially obscured. Virtually unknown during her lifetime, she catapulted to international stardom after her untimely and tragic suicide at the age of 22, in 1981.
