This is what Chris Townsend explores in Francesca Woodman. Though collections of her work have been published previously, this is the most comprehensive (as well as the first monograph), with new research by art historian Townsend along with just about 150 pages of the photographer's images in chronological order, beginning with her earliest work. As Townsend points out in the introduction, the vast majority of Woodman's archived work has gone unseen by the public -- this offers a glimpse of part of what we have missed. Also included are extracts from her own life -- postcards and journal entries, selected with an introduction by her father, George Woodman. Betsy Berne, one of Woodman's closest friends, has also contributed.
