Cindy Sherman - Untitled Film Stills


Untitled Film Stills presents the plurality of ideas about the female identity Sherman is after. On each of the images, Sherman photographs herself as a cliché of this identity as if she were an actress in a B-movie - be it as the product of domesticity, the object of sexual desire or the romantic vagabond. As critic Arthur Danto mentions in his essay Photography and Performance: Cindy Sherman’s Stills, "none of Cindy Sherman’s images is of Cindy Sherman as [herself]. They are of The Girl, for whom Cindy Sherman posed."
