At age thirteen, photographer Francesca Woodman took her first self-portrait. From then on, until her untimely death in 1981 at age 22, she produced over 800 images. The photographs, recognized for their unique vision and range of innovative techniques, have been the subject of extensive critical study. Situated alongside 1970s contemporaries such as Ana Mendieta and Hannah Wilke, Woodman’s images, self-portraits and explorations of the female body, foreshadow the work of such artists as Cindy Sherman, Sarah Lucas, Nan Goldin, and Karen Finley.
