Cindy Sherman

American photographer born on 19 January 1954 in Glen Ridge, New Jersey.
She is based in New York.

Working as her own model, Cindy Sherman has developed an extraordinary relationship with her camera. A remarkable performer, Sherman is able to drastically manipulate her age and weight leaving the artist unrecognizable to the audience. Her works range from alarming and distasteful to amusing and poignant.

Shooting alone in her studio, Sherman acts as author, director, actor, make-up artist, hairstylist and wardrobe mistress. Sherman’s work has been widely collected and exhibited by major museums throughout the world since 1980 and is the subject of numerous monographs.
