Cindy Sherman: Imitation of Life
Tuesday, June 28, 2016
“I feel I’m anonymous in my work. When I look at the pictures, I never see myself; they aren’t self-portraits. Sometimes I disappear,” American photographer Cindy Sherman (b. 1954) told The New York Times in 1990, offering profound insight into the artifice of the image itself.
Sherman has made it her life’s work to create a body of photographs in which she becomes a diverse array of societal archetypes almost exclusively available to white women in modern life. Working alone in her studio, Sherman becomes the mastermind of her enterprise, acting as author, director, make-up artist, hair stylist, wardrobe mistress, model, and photographer—all with one goal in mind: the creation of an image that transcends our assumptions about the feminine.
