Images concentrating on Self-Portraiture, Otherwise modernly know as the ‘Selfie’ she takes photos of herself impersonating, and in some respects mocking famous roles from films, TV and Magazines… she has taken roles like Marilyn Monroe, photographing mock up film stills of herself.

Extract from analysis by myself on Cindy Sherman

“From her images she took, Sherman wanted to show the different scenarios that depict stereotypes of woman; she used influences and characters from pop cultures like movies, soaps, Magazines and TV. From this series the image are influenced by different characters, although each image isn’t titled as to who the role is Sherman is mimicking”

Examples of her work.
