Woodman. And Meatyard.

This week’s review of the Francesca Woodman exhibit in New York City (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/16/arts/design/francesca-woodman-at-guggenheim-museum.html?scp=1&sq=woodman&st=cse) is balanced and insightful, but something occurred to me which has never come up in my decades of paging through monographs, down in the dank darkroom: how much influence was there on Ms. Woodman from one Ralph Eugene Meatyard? Look at these jpegs of their images and see if you can guess, completely correctly, whose is whose. Oh, sure, one can easily point out the differences, but look at the similarities.
