HEROINES by George Woodman

This book contains a series of photographs of events staged in gallery spaces and in the artist's Florentine studio. Woodman's black and white portraits free the photographic language from its formal presuppositions. The instrumental and ironic use of classical compositional elements, the artist's self-portrait, the models' "heroic" escape from their role: each image seems to sink into its own history. In the conceptual space created between image and its matching quotation from himself, George Woodman alludes to something seen but never photographed before, something familiar and imaginary at the same time, something notoriously elusive and therefore infinite.
