From Allison Geller’s book review of “Let Virtue Be Your Guide” for A Women’s Thing:
In all of her work, Frances aims her lens at specific facets of femininity to draw out complex emotions: a lifetime of nerves in a pair of hands, the taste of despair in a half-eaten cake. Pieces from “Virtue” fit perfectly into our “Anxiety” issue. (For something more glittery, check out our interview with Frances about “Pink Crush,” a series inspired by artifacts of 90s girlhood.)
Frances’ recent trajectory has been too fast to shoot in one frame: she participated in a group show at Foley Gallery this summer after winning a contest for “PDN Magazine,” earned a solo exhibition at ClampArt gallery in Chelsea (on view through December 19, 2015), AND got her monograph deal with Radius Books. Despite this slew of accomplishments, Frances admits that she has her moments of doubt.
