Abstract
We Are Francesca Woodman
I was wandering the halls of the Pompidou Centre in Paris the first time I encountered
Francesca Woodman's haunting images in person, and I was immediately captivated.
Previously, I had seen her work printed in books and was reminded of my own. As I
continued to learn more about her, I discovered that the similarities extended beyond
photographic style to having had similar life experiences. For example, Woodman's
summer home in Florence, Italy, was mere kilometers from my grandfather's olive grove in
Vaggio. In my series, We Are Francesca Woodman, I have created images inspired
thought processes behind her
inspired and beautiful works. In my own images, I transmogrify the feminine form in
various decaying interiors through the use of long exposures, just as Woodman did herself.
The resulting images from this ritualized process of creating have an aspect of
performance. After all that I have learned from my research about Woodman, I believe that
my approach to this series with the dedicated purpose of interpreting her work has
allowed me to make the penultimate connection with her art. This study and
reinterpretation of another's art has helped me toward reaching a pivotal place in finding
my own artistic vision.
