francesca woodman

we watched the woodmans last night, a documentary about the photographer francesca woodman. it is a tragic story, but it seems that is often the case with art and artist. i had not heard of her before but was immediately drawn to her photographs and wanted to share just a few of them with you. i hope you enjoy them as much as i do!



  1. oh wonderful! i have seen this offered on netflix, but haven't known enough to watch it. i definitely will now, thank you for sharing!

  2. Hmm I have not heard of this but will have to check it out thanks for sharing and the photography is very interesting I really like it. ~Heather

  3. Oh my gosh I watched this with Jess this past weekend and LOVED it!! I kept thinking, I need to tell Anne about this, but, as it seems, you were on the same page :) very cool. Her photos are so incredible. As is the entire story.

  4. They're beautiful! I'd love to see the documentary- adding to my queue!

  5. Wow, these look amazing, I can feel the sorrow though too, and will look more into her. I don't know her work at all.
    Thank you for sending me such sweet thoughts and words. I too am excited, and remember your post about your 'sister' too.

    Sending my Love form way over here to your sunny place. xx

  6. oh yes, the story of artist and tragedy. i am very familiar with it. i come a long line of artists and addicts, and the two intertwine so scarily and incredibly. francesca woodman wasn't an addict as i know, but myself and other family members of mine understand too well the pain of letting something out into the world and having it be rejected. our feelings are so close to the surface, the tiniest scrape does damage.

    i'll admit that i'm scared to watch this documentary, but thanks for a peek into the photographs!
