Francesca Woodman

Francesca Woodman is one of the most influential photographers of the last 30 years from a body of work that was produced  while she was a student. Sadly, she did not see the decade that stylistically became so much like her work.

From Wiki,

Francesca Woodman (April 3, 1958 – January 19, 1981) was an American photographer best known for her black and white pictures featuring herself and female models. Many of her photographs show young women who are nude, who are blurred (due to movement and long exposure times), who are merging with their surroundings, or whose faces are obscured. Her work continues to be the subject of much attention, years after she committed suicide at the age of 22.

There is currently a retrospective of her work on at SFMOMA and in the spring the show will move to the Guggenheim.

Here is a Google search of her images.
