1998 photo-eye Best Monograph Honorable Mention. Originally published in French, this exhibition catalogue of the first major retrospective of the work of Francesca Woodman highlights the brilliance of a photographer whose brief life has had a tremendous influence on a subsequent generation of artists concerned with the self-portrait and representations of the female body. With numerous texts (including one by the photographer herself), many unpublished images, full-color gatefolds, and gorgeous printing, this is destined to be the authoritative Woodman monograph. Note: Illustration shows library jacket protector.
Crease in upper right corner of rear dust jacket. Top right corner of cover is bumped also affecting text block. One inch dent close to top of spine; otherwise Near Fine.
