The Photography of Cindy Sherman

I saw an exhibition of the work of American concept photographer Cindy Sherman the other day. Her outstanding body of work consists of series of shots where she photographs herself in different costumes and situations. Sherman shoots alone in her studio, assuming multiple roles as author, director, make-up artist, hairstylist, wardrobe mistress, and model. Here is a small sample of the exhibition at the Broad Museum, in Los Angeles, which featured forty years of Sherman’s work. She’s in every one of these photos, younger in some, older in others. Recognizable in some, unrecognizable in others. Outstanding artist!
