Cindy Sherman Books.
Shermans reputation was established on the basis of her Untitled Film Stills, a series of black-and-white photographs from the late 1970s in which the artist depicted herself dressed in the guises of clich├ęd B-movie heroines. In photograph after photograph, Sherman was ever present, and yet never really there - her ready adaptation of a range of personae highlighting the masquerade of identity.

"I didn't want to make "high" art, I had no interest in using paint, I wanted to find something that anyone could relate to without knowing about contemporary art. I wasn't thinking in terms of precious prints or archival quality; I didn't want the work to seem like a commodity."
