Francesca, I Felt Your Soul Die.

Francesca Woodman was only 22 years old when she took her own life. Her photographs haunt me in such a way that I can almost hear them trying to speak aloud... I find myself losing myself in her work. I'd highly recommend taking a look at her photography, or even watching, "The Woodmans," a documentary on Francesca and her parents...
I didn't want to post anything too similar to her original pieces, so her style is actually much different... And (I believe), exclusively in Black and white...

She was one of the perfectly blessed/cursed ones.

  1. Francesca Woodman was a profoundly gifted soul. Often it is those who are gifted that have the most missunderstood lives. I often wondered if being gifted wasn't somehow robbing a person of something else somehow? like maybe although their brain is creatively blessed...have they been robbed of something else in order to create that gift...maybe it's silly. idk


“As a leader... I have always endeavored to listen to what each and every person in a discussion had to say before venturing my own opinion. Oftentimes, my own opinion will simply represent a con-sensus of what I heard in the discussion. I always remember the axiom: a leader is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.”
