This could be an interesting hour

Next Thursday, Dec. 22, Independent Lense will show The Woodmans, the story of a family of artists that suffered the death of perhaps its most gifted member, the 22-year-old photographer Francesca Woodman. Over a period of about eight years, Francesca shot thousands of black and white photos, many showing herself and other women. In January 1981, three months shy of her 23rd birthday, she ended her life by jumping out of a building in Manhattan. Francesca's parents are George and Betty Woodman. Her brother, Charles Woodman, is an electronics artist. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is showing Francesca's photographs until Feb. 20. The Marian Goodman Gallery in New York sells her work.
