Blogging from A to Z Challenge: S is for…Cindy Sherman (#AtoZChallenge)
Welcome to my April 2020 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!
Cindy Sherman (1954- ) is an American photographer “Whose work consists exclusively of photographic self-portraits, depicting herself in many different contexts and as various imagined characters. ” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cindy_Sherman) “For four decades, Cindy Sherman has probed the construction of identity, playing with the visual and cultural codes of art, celebrity, gender, and photography. ” (https://www.moma.org/artists/5392)
I’ve heard of Sherman before in a photography class, and her work is very compelling – self portraits, but all of her as other people. Check out a large catalogue of her works at the MoMa.
I must apologize for not writing more, and for not composing more of my own thoughts, for any of these posts. Normally flying by the seat of my pants works for me, but apparently not in a pandemic when I work for an eLearning area of a college whose entire roster of courses is suddenly moving online. But, I’m here, and I really hope you are enjoying the work of the photographers I am presenting!
