Cindy Sherman




Cynthia Morris Sherman (born January 19, 1954) is a Pictures Generation American artist whose work consists primarily of photographic self-portraits, depicting herself in many different contexts and as various imagined characters.

Her breakthrough work is often considered to be “Complete Untitled Film Stills,” a series of 70 black-and-white photographs of herself in many of the roles of women in performance media (especially arthouse films and popular B-movies). In the 1980s, Sherman used color film and large prints, and focused more on costume, lighting and facial expression.

In 1995, Sherman was the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship.[1] In 2013 she received an honorary doctorate degree from the Royal College of ArtLondon.
