Farewell Francesca

Francesca Woodman - photo by George Lange

Photography has the power to reveal the truth but it also has an equal power to mythologise.

The camera captures our story. Birth, Life, Death.

...But sometimes that death is far too premature. An end to a journey that has hardly begun. Francesca Woodman was a young photographer who embarked on a unique journey of the self but sadly left this world before she had really begun to realise her greatest potential as a photographer.

Her vision was simple. Her images uniquely her own. And they were often quite wonderful. She said-

"I feel that photographs can either document and record reality or they can offer images as an alternative to everyday life… places for the viewer to dream in."

Dream on...
