Gelatin Silver Print

Francesca Woodman (1958-1981) Untitled, Providence, Rhode Island (c. 1976) Like Cindy Sherman, Francesca Woodman began to make art in the mid-1970s, using herself as the subject of photos with a conceptual edge. But there the comparisons end. While Sherman’s work is all about archly staged artifice and pop culture’s intrusion into daily life, Woodman created a spontaneous theater of self-drama that was as dreamlike as it was nakedly real.

Kitty by Man Ray - I like the fact that this photo is mixing human and animal features, and the shadow and highlight of the photo - it looks mysterious and surreal
