Chris Townsend, in his Introduction to Phaidon's lush monograph Francesca Woodman, begins the task of placing Woodman's work in an art historical context:

When she died in 1981, aged only twenty-two, she was still learning, still absorbing influences, still exploring what she wanted her work to do and testing the directions it might take."

Wow! I can't believe how many of you responded to the call for entries for RED! Thank you! It wasn't easy narrowing it down, but I have chosen 15 images to share with you. Entries from women out-numbered those from men by an almost 3-1 ratio and that is reflected in the final selections. Entries were all submitted by email and were chosen by how they read digitally.
So without further ado, I present you RED!
