A while ago I watched the documentary, The Woodmans, on Netflix. I’ve been familiar with Francesca Woodman’s photographic work for quite some time, but this film made me feel like I know her better. Her work is so beautiful and I think, for all of her fans, it hurts your heart to see so clearly that she was born before her time. While she was alive she had little recognition, but today she would be a rising star. Her work is so current, but it was shot in the 1970s and early 80s.
I recommend the film–it’s a poignant portrait of her family and their love for Francesca. I bawled my eyes out and wish so much that she was still alive–I know she’d be doing amazing work. I could see her showing in galleries, being a big name for fashion editorials and ads as well. Each member of the Woodman family is remarkable in their own right, too. Check out a preview of The Woodmans.
Have a wonderful week!
