"The sad fact is, all we know of Francesca Woodman is the work she produced between the ages of 13 and 23. Who among us would want to be judged solely on what we produced in our formative years?"
-Greg Fallis

Your paper will be, of course, wonderful...

Ah! Some of my favorites here...

May I ask, what is the theme?

Thank you so much, guys. It's been interesting to write, but the choosing of images has been a blast! It's your basic identity and compositional study, nothing too unexpected, I imagine. Except that it's way too long, and I keep adding images to the list. It's been years since I wrote a paper over five pages, so it took about day of staring at a blank page before I even wrote out one paragraph.
