Cindy Sherman & Brandon Stanton

Untitled Film Still #13. 1978.

Collection The Museum of Modern Art, New York. 

Cindy Sherman is one of the most respectful photographers of the late twentieth century. She uses herself to communicate the "role of the woman, the role of the artist" and much more. Through her works, she has raised important questions of the society like the role of women in society. Her photographs are very unique and sometimes the viewer is confused about the clarity of her true nature. She is often dressed scary and deformed and sets herself in strange positions and its features oddly lighting of green, blue and red.
