Francesca Woodman

Last week I introduced my favorite photographer, Francesca Woodman, to my photography class. We are entering the last part of the school year so I am giving out final projects and the kid's is self portraits. She is a Colorado born artist who suffered from depression and committed suicide when she was 22. I had a lot of interesting reactions from my students. I just can't help but understand exactly what she feeling and communicating. Depression is a powerful thing. Of course I don't tell the kids that is why I find her so interesting. I also don't show the boobie pics.
