"Suicide at the age of just twenty-two brought the life of the gifted young photographer Francesca Woodman (1958--1981) to a tragically early end. The subject of much critical writing and acclaim, Woodman's work only became widely known posthumously through public through the carefully printed collection of photographs she left behind. . ." Woodman's thoughtful black-and-white photographs explore what critic Harm Lux terms "the symbolic captivity of the female body." A very scarce copy of this important exhibition catalogue from a show that toured six European museums in 1992--1993.
