inspiration: francesca woodman

i am surprised that i've never come across francesca woodman before today, an american photographer (1958-1981).  from age 13 she used herself as the main subject in her black and white photographs but she had a short lived career choosing to take her life at age 23 by jumping out of a loft window in new york.  i am in awe of her photographs, and  have never felt such a reaction to art, they are incredibly eerie and will continue to haunt me but also inspire me to use curiosity and truth.
