francesca woodman

how have i not come across her work before now!

Some are self portraits, others she used other models. She committed suicide in 1981, sadly. I am intrigued by the images where the body is bound or covered, especially the last image. Without knowing of her work, I made a self portrait, a little over a year ago, where i bound myself tightly in fishing lure and stuffing cotton. here it is below.
