Francesca Woodman (1958-1981) was an American photographer that embraced motifs such as knee socks, braided hair, angels, summer dresses, and decaying buildings. She often acted as her own model, photographing herself to capture the image she pictured in her mind. Many admirers and historians wonder if Francesca Woodman’s work was an act of self-portraiture, but Francesca herself seemed unconcerned with this categorization. She was a paradox in knee socks, making herself appear and disappear at will through her photography. This essay explores aspects of Francesca’s biography alongside an examination of her artistic process.
