Francesca Woodman at Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh


I am a big fan of The Ingleby Gallery, hidden away behind Waverley Station on Calton Road.  It’s new, it’s creative and it shows extraordinary work that I’ve commented on before in my blog.  Last week I popped in to check out this remarkable exhibition by Francesca Woodman.

An American photographer from Denver, she committed suicide, in 1981 at the age of 22.

Her work is intensely personal and much of it is self-portraiture.  It’s mainly female nudes (many of them her) that shows how much she must have loathed herself as few, if any, show her face in a good light.

The prints are small and Silver Gelatin – I think –  (as you’ll be familiar with if  you  saw Ansell Adams’  show in Edinburgh last year)
