This comprehensive monograph includes over 250 of Woodman’s works – some of which have never been exhibited or published before – as well as extracts from her journals selected by her father George Woodman. There are examples of her large-scale blueprints and reproductions of her photobooks, including Some Disordered Interior Geometries, which was published in 1981, the year she took her own life. An extensive text by Chris Townsend examines the influences of gothic literature, surrealism, feminism and post-minimalist art on Woodman’s photographs. Townsend places Woodman in relation to her contemporaries, such as Cindy Sherman and Richard Prince. This book confirms Woodman’s position as one of America’s most talented photographers and important artists since 1970, with an influence lasting well beyond her own time.
