I find Francesca Woodman‘s images really quite haunting, maybe its the run down spaces which she merges her own body with, or maybe its that someone so young could produce such mature and tormented images. She took her first self portrait aged 13 and committed suicide aged 22. She left behind a vast body of simply amazing images, with a strong stylistic and thematic approach throughout. She deals with reinterpretations of the female form and a sort of self narrative that’s difficult to pinpoint, kinda like a less literal take on Cindy Sherman’s film stills series.
