Cindy Sherman – Untitled Film Still

Cindy Sherman is an American photographer and film director, best known for her conceptual portraits.

Sherman’s “Untitled Film Stills” (1977-80) is a series of 69 black and white photographs of the artist herself enacting various generic female film characters from 1950s, and 60s Hollywood, film nior and European art-house films. Her aim is not to recreate the scenes but to re-examine women’s stereotypical roles in history and contemporary society.
