Cynthia Morris Sherman (born January 19, 1954) is an American photographer and film director, best known for her conceptual portraits.
She is best known for “Complete Untitled Film Stills,” a series of 69 black-and-white photographs which were meant to subvert the stereotypes of women in media (namely arthouse films and popular b-movies). In the 1980s, Sherman used color film and large prints, and focused more on lighting and facial expression.
In 1995, Sherman was the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship. In 2013 she received an honorary doctorate degree from the Royal College of Art, London
