Francesca Woodman was an extremely talented artist that was far ahead of her time.  She lives on through her work and legacy which only a quarter of the world has seen out of over the 800 photos she took.  Most of her work was done in school and was taken between 72-81, when she tragically died at the early age of 22 of suicide. Her work is so ghostly and hints to the spirit world and death.  The images look like something that was accidentally caught on film that we weren't supposed to see.  Most of her photos are of herself nude.  Their is a film called The Woodman's above, about her life, and her family of artists that was really great and terribly sad.  Her innate artistic vision and extreme fragility gave birth to some of the most creative and stunning work.
