  1. 1. Cindy Sherman   Photographer Born: 1954 Watch: h#p://www.youtube.com/watch? v=Re8g85gMsJ8  
  2. 2. Biography  •  Born  with  parents  who,  unlike  her,  were  not  overly  arCsCc,   Sherman  said:  "It  wasnt  unCl  college  that  I  had  any  concept   of  what  was  going  on  in  the  art  world”.  (CindySherman.com,   2004)  •  AQer  graduaCng  in  1976,  Sherman  moved  to  New  York  to   embark  upon  her  career  in  art.  •  In  her  loQ  in  Manha#an,  Cindy  began  taking  photos  of   herself,  which  were  later  known  as  UnCtled  Film  SClls   (CindySherman.com,  2004)  
  3. 3. The  housewife  (below):    Housewife   The Film still series (right): Prostitute -commenting on women and how they are portrayed in the media.
  4. 4. The  Woman     in  Distress  
  5. 5. The  Actress  
  6. 6. Disasters  and  Fairytales  •  From  1985-­‐1989,  Sherman  was  not  the  sole   focus  of  her  artwork.  •  These  images  are  more  grotesque  than  her   former  works,  and  oQen  used  un-­‐idenCfiable   se`ngs,  as  well  as  oddly  coloured  lighCng   shades  of  blue,  green  and  red.  •  These  images  were  designed  to  shock.  
  7. 7. Sexual  Reference  Pictures  •  In  1992,  Sherman   embarked  on  a  series  of   photographs  known  as   ‘sex  pictures’,  where  she   was  enCrely  absent  from   the  photos.  •  Dolls  and  prostheCc  body   parts  were  used,  in  highly   sexual  poses.  
  8. 8. Story  of  Success  •  Due  to  Sherman  being  so  successful  so  young,   her  work  has  had  considerable  maturaCon   over  the  past  decade.  •  In  1999,  the  average  price  for  one  of  her   artworks  was  $2000-­‐$50000.  •  Sherman’s  popularity  conCnues  to  grow   around  the  world,  with  exhibits  in  countries   such  as  Germany,  Japan  and  France.  
  9. 9. Metro  Pictures  •  Sherman  has  recently  gone   back  to  using  herself  as  a   model.    •  Metro  Pictures,  Sherman   displayed  a  series  of  portrait   like  images  of  herself  in  the   guise  of  women  of  California.   Again  simply  ‘types’,  e.g.  -­‐  the   The Divorcee divorcee.    •  Why  do  you  think  Sherman  uses  herself  as  a   model.  •  Why  do  you  think  she  portrays  ‘types’  of   women?
