Super neat Cindy Sherman mini monograph. Of course has some of the untitled film stills, but also has a large amount of colour work, which irritatingly is all untitled, so difficult to describe. In a nutshell though, its role playing, performance oriented documentation and posed photographs that really wouldn’t look out of place in a fashion editorial or celebrity special- except that there are no names, brands or faces, just the stylistic hallmarks of them- which is where Shermans’ playful comments on the form of popular and media culture are at their most poignant.
