If I had one wish in this world dominated by quick, generic and often rather uninspiring digital photography clogging up our precious webspace, it would be to bring Francesca Woodman back to life.

She committed suicide in 1981 at the age of 22 by jumping out of a loft window in New York, but for me, her works have only grown in their eroticism and thanatal (I wrote it, therefore it's a word now!) attraction since.

Ingleby Gallery in Edinburgh devotes this prodigy of black & white self-portraiture a well-deserved retrospective simply entitled Francesca Woodman featuring 27 painfully beautiful silver gelatin prints of her evocative work. I think she would like it.
