The Agony and the Ecstasy of Francesca Woodman

  • Preview (0:01:29)
    Premiere: 12/22/2011

The Woodmans were a family of well-known artists bonded in their belief that making art was the highest form of expression. For their daughter Francesca – one of the late 20th century’s most recognized and influential photographers – fame came only after her suicide at 22. Her family was broken apart by – and in a sense healed by – art.
