Acting as her own photographer, model, makeup artist and stylist, Sherman dons masks and changes identities at the drop of a hat (or wig or costume) to create scene-stealing displays that expose the artifice of the everyday.
See Sherman zoom in on—and blow up—the conventions of b-movie stars and pin-up queens. Watch her breakdown the stereotypes of damsels in distress and rage against the machine of image, gender, identity, censorship and more. Whatever the role, Sherman makes us question the reality behind roleplaying.
Explore scrolling timelines of top female game-changers and image-makers—from the Material Girl to the Kardashians, Gloria Steinem to Gaga, Margaret Thatcher to Hillary Clinton and every major milestone of women in media in-between.
Cindy Sherman was born in 1954 in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. The youngest of five children, she grew up in Huntington, Long Island watching lots of television and playing dress-up, eventually graduating to girdles and projectile bras by fourteen, and coming of age in the shadow of Marilyn Monroe (and all the Marilyn Monroe wannabes.) Take a closer look at the details of her life in pictures and words.
