Cindy Sherman (American, b. 1954) is a contemporary photographer, filmmaker, and performance artist. She is widely known for her distinct shooting style and her singular choice of subject: herself. Through various disguises, prosthetics, and makeup, Sherman brings to focus the nature of representation and femininity with reference to literary and internet media as source inspiration. Her works allude to the contemporary construction of identity as either a product of popular culture or as reactions to various, socially-defined, female personality types mined from present society. She has been exhibited internationally.
